Welcome to the Tunesmith Songwriting Forums.
We are 13 years old! We went in to operations in 2001! Some of you have been right here all this time. We are growing old together as a family. LOL So Mike S mentioned doingn something with some of the old threads and I thought it may be cool to do a poll to find out what your favorite threads are and why.

Since eating is such a big part of our lives and has actually provoked a song or two, we are designing this forum with FOOD in mind. Post your favorite recipe and if we get a good response we may publish our own cookbook! Thank you LIJEMTU for hosting this delicious forum!

Please post any tools you have to use as a guide when critiquing songs. Also when you post a song for critique please critique at least two other songs so everyone gets feedback.

Please Post NO MORE Than 1 Lyric Per Day; and Please Try To Critique At Least 3 Lyrics By Other Members For Each Lyric You Post.

Have you RE-Written a song that has already been critiqued in one of the "Lyric Forums?" Please try to wait at least ONE WEEK before posting it in the Re-Write forum. This will help ensure that you get Fresh Feedback from the members; and, to make sure you give yourself a chance to set aside your lyric for a few days after a re-write and come back to it with a fresh perspective before you post it again. Be sure to post the first song version along with your Re-write for comparison!

The Nashville Bound section is NOW hosted by Professional Songwriter , AL CARMICHAEL! Post songs you feel are ready to be pitched on Music Row right now, not for works in progress (which is what the Audio section is for). In this section, the bar is set higher. Performance counts. Prosody rules. Song should be polished for pitching

Songwriters are into home recording more than ever. Here is a place to ask questions and share tips and info with some talented and experienced engineers. Geek-speak and Tech-talk allowed but not mandatory.

A Tunesmith member expressed the idea for this forum becuase there is SO much music available today and just not time to listen for the songs you would buy. Post your recent finds here and share the links.

Examine hit songs, discuss why they work and what we can learn from them. Ok, so maybe you have a favorite lyric that isn't a hit, but want to share and discuss why it works so well.

Corey P will be your host for a fun and entertaining journey to the world of parodies! Along with the sheer enjoyment of a great parody, they are an excellent exercise to help hone your writing skills. If you haven’t already, have a try at writing to an existing melody and music!
