This clip is on how to write music. Well for me the only thing that I actually write down are lyrics. I don't know how to write music which a lot of bands really don't and ever since, you know, Elvis; I mean everybody, you know, pretty much if it's in rock in roll or in bands, they just kind of create by ear. I do the same. I, I write lyrics. The way I remember music is I either record it on a little recorder. Sometimes if I got an extra, a guitar player, he's going to, he's going to want to know the key or the chords and I can write chords. And if you're, you know, if you're a guitar player, you pretty much know chords; if you don't know how to write music. But yeah, as far as writing music, the lyrics you definitely want to write down because those are easily forgettable. And that's what I do; I write down the lyrics and then I just hear remember the chords with the recorder or you know, a lot of times I had is kind of remember. And that's how to write music.
