    I'd be up to giving it a try, but... questions. What style, do you sing, play an instrument etc. Lots of people on this BBS willing to collaborate, just gotta stick around. If its a drive by post, you may not get much interest.

    Now here's some question for you guys... I want to write my own music, for a song that allready has the lyrics finished. But I can't get it right. I've got an ok start, but that's it. And it has to be finished next friday (2nd of march) cause that's when I have a gig... Inspire me.
    It's a cabaret sad/funny-kinda song about my girlfriend leaving me, just me on vocals and guitar or piano.

    I suppose there are allready lots of threads on this, but I've got another question as excuse for not using the search.

    Here it comes: dragonworks, where did you learn about orchestration etc? I'm studying harmony and reading schoenbergs fundamentals of... but haven't got a book on orchestration. (mainly waiting for the next version of adler's book...)

    I hate to say this to you but it just comes natural, I have allways been able to do it. I cant score it but I can
    hear it in my head, then I have a nice set of keys on which to lay it down with. I really didnt't need any kind
    of training except to communicate what I hear to other musicians. Still cant read or write, I know you may not
    believe me.

    Well, I do believe you. At times I can hear things too. But I'm really working on getting it out. And the education, harmony etc, is really helpfull for that. And it helps in other ways too. Sometimes I write a piece, but just run into a dead end, and then you can release the theory on it, and it will guide you to a solution.

    But for a real orchestration, you do need to know what the different instruments and there capabilities are... (I was thinking orchestration as in a piano concerto or something like that. I think you're talking orchestration in non-classical music, right? Otherwise you're truly a genius...)
