Finding inspiration for songwriting

The genesis of most any song is a bit of a mystery. It can start with a thought, a phrase, an image, an emotion… the possibilities are endless. Sometimes it even falls, nearly fully formed, from the cosmos, like the music to McCartney’s “Yesterday” or the entirety of Lennon’s “Across the Universe.” Such songs write themselves, as Lennon said.

But for most of the rest of us, it ain’t that easy. Adrean Try over at autiotuts has a good post that examines some of the places you can find inspiration for songwriting. Enjoy!
