Thread Name: What makes a person a good songwriter?
Subject: RE: What makes a person a good songwriter?
Wish I knew, I'd write good songs then.

Writing in standard English helps, because then all English speakers can send you royalties! I like some Jim Croce songs, but I can't sing them. Double negatives, bad grammer all over them.

Singing songs that haven't been polished, that still have too many words in them, doesn't help.
Very subjective thread, this.
