Q: Hi, my name is Aarron. When you write a song do you start with lyrics or melody first?
A: Hi Aarron, thanks for the good question. It's hard to answer because I do a little of both. How it really works for me is that I'll grab the guitar, sit down and start messing around. If i'm feeling a certain way it helps because I use those feelings, then I will write words down, either word association or just run on sentences until something makes sense. Or I'll like the beat the syllables in certain words I may be thinking and let that take the wheel. It varies.. It's all really based on mood, emotions, feelings, if something happened that day, etc.... I go from there, it's mainly organic.
