Are there any songwriters here who play multiple instruments, can do great arranging on a computer, and your lead vocal melodies are pretty good, but your lyrics fall short? Why is this? Is it possibly because we might have a great understanding of melody and harmony, and the vocal melody is just anther "instrument" on top of the instruments we've already arranged? (think of the lead vocal melody almost as a saxophone or mini-moog solo) But lyrics are an entirely different beast. They instrinsically are not musical. They convey meaning through language not melody, and this is something that those of us with years of musical training tend to NOT have as much training for. What do you folks think about this?
