Thanks, that sounds nice. When you have the song in your head, how do you put it down? Do you write the notes from your head, or sing it as a recording, or play it, or how? And if you make something digital, what programme (for recording or maybe drums etc) do you use?

I've started to do a riff and my cousin gave me the rythm of a verse and i've found the chords. Personnally I prefert make the music before and I put lyrics on it after. But sometimes I find music thanks to lyrics i've wrote. And the rest of the song comes in my mind and I try to make it sounds good. When I have enough to make a song, I register it, I correct some things if it doesn't sound and i write lyrics.
I don't have a lot of experience to write songs, it's the first song I work seriously on. I have a lot of melodies in my mind too, but I don't know what to do with. And I write a lot of lyrics without music. I hope I will find something to do with=) I hope it will help you to write your own songs=)

I use Guitar Pro a lot too.. great software to help you remember your ideas later.. even though the sound sucks

You can type in diverent layers of guitars, bass, drums, vocals, whatever you want. Sometimes you can even find pretty interesting riffs just with experimenting in Guitar Pro.
Guitar Pro and Cubase (for example) are even compatible. You can load it into the recording programm and can play to it.
