I would like see if there is interest in adding a forum on singing and song writing. It could singing, harmonizing, lyrics and song writing, teaching and coaching vocals, singers and song writers. Etc.
What say you? Brad

Sounds like an interesting idea. Wonder if enough people will think so for it to become viable?

I'm writing songs all the dang time.
Quite often parodies of existing songs.

Be glad to contribute.

Have BEGGED, each year, for people to post THEIR rendition of my seasonal favorite, "Run, Mary,Run".
Only one taker so far.

I like this idea. I write songs but find the guitar a much easier instrument to write with and consequently would like to force myself to write more for banjo. So count me in.

Hi @rinemb. Good idea I think, for all kinds of reasons. But mostly:
A. I write stuff with a banjo. (No actual writing involved, but you know what I mean.)
And
B. My singing needs help.
Oh, and
C. It's mostly garbage.....

Great Idea, I dont write songs but I am always interested in how a song came to be and how you can have a thousands of completely different song with the same chord structure and also how some songs get away with sounding exactly like others with just different lyrics

I write songs a bit, sometimes with words. I'd be interested in hearing about how others do it.

Your suggestion adds to a good reason for a Singing Forum.  Brad

I don't think I am allowed to post attention to this subject in other forums, so any suggestions to get the word out, let me know. Brad

I am not sure where Eric would put the Forum, but I would like to be free to use or show any instrument backing the singing where it applies.  I tend to use a guitar mostly for creating the melody, but sometimes I have banjo in mind, as well.  Sometimes I pull up a virtual keyboard.  Sometimes stuff I write are non OT-BG-Country, sometimes they are.  And we have all kinds of banjos represented at BHO for diversity.  Brad

It would work fine in the Other Topics area.

Dear mods, how should I promote this idea to Eric. I am hesitant to duplicate subject in another forum for fear of rules violations, in order to poll member interest. Thx, brad

Just email him, and point out this thread—which he’s probably aware of.

Like Jeff, I would read this forum. I don't (currently) write, I do sing and I would like to learn about how to harmonize in my singing.
