Hello – I'm a bit of a musician and a bit of a writer, so have been combining the two for a short while now. So I guess I'm an apprentice songwriter. I've started reading some books on the craft and also learning some rudimentary recording skills in order to try to build up arrangements. As for my singing skills – well the least said about that, the better.

I'm hoping to create some raw unproduced material for feedback. So any critique received by established songwriters will be gratefully received.
I have no illusions about ever creating material worthy of full production, but I would like to try to develop the basic skills of structure, lyric, arrangement, etc.

I only discovered this forum today so before seeking feedback on the Work in Progress section, I might spend a few weeks reading up past threads and following and commenting on new threads.

I grew up in Birmingham but haven't lived in the UK for a long time now.

Hi RealKevM - Yes I play guitar, so I'll try my preliminary song arrangements with chord rhythm, bass and maybe some riffs. Just enough so the song intention can be heard.
