Here's what I've found in writing songs and I hope this helps you. I've learned from past experience that when your writing and performing songs, expecially when there your own work, people react better to songs in third person perspective. What I mean by that is, rather than singing about yourself and things that you've done in your life, try singing about someone else. Now dont think I mean that the song cant be about you or you shouldnt sing a song about yourself, but rather than saying things like "I lost my love" you could put it as "He lost his love". I've learned that people react a little differently than when it appears that your singing about yourself. That's just my personal findings around the places I play. I hope that I've been able to help. <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif" border=0 alt="Smile">

What I would try doing is going to local clubs or bars and asking if they would be interested in having a local band play.  There are a lot of places looking for musicians to play and they are paying between three hundred and four hundred for a two to three hour show.

Let me know if you find anything. <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif" border=0 alt="Smile">

I've always enjoyed "Christmas In Dixie" by Alabama.  There's a lot of good Christmas songs no doubt, but that's my personal favorite.

Hay i'm a professional musician i make a living playing music.  I need a band! The last band i had they were all assholes but they were really good. I live in columbiana, ohio.  if anybody  is interested give me a holler

First I need to know weather you want it to

sound like a new country song or an old country

song.  If you want it to sound new write about

yourself and how you feel.  To make it so that

your the third person. what i mean by that is

dont write about yourself write so it sounds like

your writing about someone else. Other than

that you just need to know what to write about

Just start playing make the words up as you go

put the music on a recording device and when

you come up with something that you like you

just need to write it down and then go from there.

Most of us grew up listening to Merle Haggard

David Allan Coe, Johnny Paycheck, and Johnny

Cash but what do you really know about them?

My recomendation is to try playing some <u>Merle Haggard </u>songs because most of the songs are only three chords.  He usually revolves around the key of G.
