I was recording some songs with a friend who writes some pretty good stuff, IMO.

He had this sign up in his studio that I really liked :

"Painters put their work on canvas or paper ;
Songwriters and musicians put their work on silence."

Does anyone here do this when writing a song?:

you come up with the music part, then lets say you add the words and melody. do you write out the notes of the vocal / melody line?

i think this would be pretty cool... but i don't know how to do this.

anyone here doing this?

"do you write out the notes of the vocal / melody line?"

I think if I want to take my writing to the next level then that is exactly what I need to do. Since I am limited, singing-wise, I often just sing the easy way out without really listening. If I mapped out the melody on piano or guitar, I would force myself to write better melodies.
