Haha speaking of, this just came up in my memories from an earlier version of me trying to level up her music reading proficiency. Always been more of an ear player and had to invent ways to keep myself engaged to build up my reading chops

I start with the chords and the rhythm section then write lyrics then figure out the vocal melody. Melody writing is the most instinct-driven part of my process.

Lyrics usually, though it's a bit mixed up. My music skills aren't that hot, dunno about my poetry skills either but it's a nursery rhyme sort of vibe. A bit of Robin Frederick too. Some poems turn into songs tho' sometimes I write poems to a tune - or later verses!

A lot of times, I find a chord progression then it goes from there into (hopefully) a song. My latest one though started from a phrase in my head. Took a while but I finally found a chord progression and groove, so, both, I guess but usually progression first

Lyrics and melodies are often tied for me. Even when I used to write poetry in, like, 7th grade, there was almost always a melody in my head.

I agree, it really doesn't sound like Lyrics Set To Music. It feels deeply intuitive and stream of consciousness

I hear that. For me what now worka is to say "I'm giving at least a half hour to just existing as a songwriter every day" and it may be actively writing, but it's also fine if it's like, practicing & fleshing out something recent or exploring a vocal arrangement etc

I came up with a rager of a metal song, but don't know what to back the lyrics with, so I'm right there with you.

It's important to me to know and understand music theory but it absolutely is not a part of my writing process. For me writing is finding the music that wants to happen, not doing a math equation to create it. That said, 1/2

I actually feel that a fair amount of Iron Maiden's catalog could be described as heavy metal limericks and I'm super here for it

Not all poetry makes a good song, not all songs make for good poetry, depends on the style you are working with. I've put someone else's poetry to music but found it extremely challenging!

Hello! I do lyrics and music separately most of the time, so, I'll have music before I put lyrics on top. With the music there, the melodies start to flow as the words are placed. That make sense?

I learned theory back when I learned guitar, about 30 years ago... don't remember a damn thing. So, it's just by ear and what sounds good, or bad... depending on what I'm trying to do.

I’m never out of work in time to attend this chat. 😢 I almost always start with a rhythm progression and work a vocal melody over it and go back to lay lyrics into the melody.

Not sure i completely understand. But, I will write music, and then listen to it over and over to get vocal rhythms and melodies, and then find lyrics that fit that.
