What a wonderful occupation songwriting is simply for the fact that you can't show anyone how to do it.
If I were manufacturing a car I could show you how it was done, but with songwriting there is no manual.
At Belmont college I hear there are songwriting classes. The heart of true songwriting lies in the primordial vastness of being a vessel for things not of this earth..When one is involved with the unknown, one realizes there are no words to describe what makes the unknown happen, all one can say is, "I don't know", that's honesty.
Any true songwriter will tell you they don't know how a song is created which is the beauty of it; anything that can't be described can only be witnessed.. As in my case, I can only be a witness to the gifts I've been given..There is no such thing as a songwriter.
