Some things people have told me about writing music:

This is by no means a complete list, but here are some things people have said to me about writing music:

1) Start with the melody.
2) Music should be discovered, not written.
3) You got to "fuck up" the beat a little.
4) The bass adds interest.
5) Intro/Verse/Chorus/Verse/Chorus/Bridge/Chorus/Coda
6) You have to keep the listener interested, surprise them.

Ok, there will be more to follow, watch for additional comments as I hear them.
