I think the band, as a whole, has fallen so in love with their big, loud, "wall of sound" dynamic that they've forgotten how powerful real dynamics can be. It's just who they are, but they could be so much more than they are ( :humina ) if they'd tone it down a little and focus on finding ...
^^ these are good ideas! Another bit of my problem is just life. Back in my single man days, I could just sit around my house with my guitar, dinking around and practicing, trying random songs to cover, working out my own ideas. Now that I have a family (including a 1 year old), my time to sit aroun...
I turned my focus outward with lyric writing once my own turmoil was lessened. Putting myself in the position of others and/or imagining stories. I still keep it personal from the perspective of narration but there's so much inspiration from events outside myself. I could never write a love song or...

I'm a big believer of letting songs go wherever they are required to go. Some need the A/B/A/B/C/B structure and some require more extension. It's my one gripe with AB is that aaaallllways needs to be 3 choruses. What about Bohemian Rhapsody? 2112? Hessian Peel? A structure can be a useful tool but...
This one is a couple years old, but one of my favorites -- doing a cover of John Corabi's song "If I Had a Dime" (from his Unplugged album a few years back) at an open mic in Minneapolis. *EDIT* You know, listening back to this, I actually played it much faster than I do nowadays. It's fu...
I think my problem is, my life got too awesome. I used to write as a way to deal with the loneliness of singlehood and all that jazz, but then I met someone and got married and had a baby and life got all kinds of good. And I'd love to try writing some love songs or something more upbeat and happy,...
