Hello everyone! I see some people write songs, and I was just wondering how. What's your formula to writing lyrics? Do you play instruments or just write lyrics? I don't know how to play any instrument so I was hoping that's not a requirement to write a good song. What advice do you have? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you. :)

@caydee I can't even write songs and I can play the guitar I don't think that you need an instrument to write songs. if you have a good musical ear and natural talent then you can sing write songs without having the knowledge of notes , chords or scales. many artists in the music industry do not play a single instrument but are still very famous. so I think that you should just go for it , best of luck!!
PS: make sure u write a proper song with a chorus verse and everything
