Hey @Bobby Burrows (http://www.songwriterforum.co.uk/index.php?action=profile;u=22165)

This community is definitely teaching!!!

I would personally suggest tackling each area separately so that you can ask specific questions on a single area

To kick you off I would would suggest brushing up on some basic music theory and tackle chords and chord progressions first as these often provide the backbone and foundation to songs - and chord progressions are not subject to copyright so you can find one you like and then use different rhythms, melodies and lyrics over the top

Here is a good starting point to get you going:
