My problem, well one of them, is that when I'm writing lyrics I have a tendency to be too literal, if that's the right word. What I mean is, that I try to make everything too clear, insofar as trying to get my meaning as clear as possible.
See, one thing I've noticed about song writers I admire is that there's also some ambiguity to their lyrics . . . and sometimes, it's like they aren't really saying anything very profound, but the words they use are just weird enough to make it SEEM really profound. I think Bob Dylan is the MASTER of this (not that he hasn't written some awesomely profound things). Sometimes he just seems to be playing around with language . . . John Lennon seemed to do this too.
Has anyone else noticed this??? I don't have anyone to talk to about guitar because no one in my family is a musician and I just started about playing guitar a year ago, and all my friends would rather play Guitar Hero than a real guitar. Plus, I live outside of town on a farm, so I'VE GOT NO ONE to talk to too, and so I think about things alot when I'm doing chores, but I don't know if it's just me or if other people might think about this too.
