    writing 20+ songs is crazy, and pronbably most sound the same. Tone it down some.

    In addition to writing there is a lot of arranging and remixing I do. Lots of older song (especially Jazz and Movie tunes) sound so boring. but if you modify them a little and use different styles they make sense again. I do this for a Jazz-Punk-Acid-Funk Trio.
    kind off, anyway.

    I think you're being very narrow minded there man. I've written about 100 acoustic songs, bout the same rock songs, a dozen or so punk songs, 5 classsical numbers and 24 songs for musicals, all very different styles about a variety of subjects!!

    Don't think any two sound the same!!

    When I was still studying in school, I had more time to compose midi songs, but I started working, things have slowed down.

    But with this website here, I'm forcing myself to pick it up again :)
    -> Target to get at least 5 self-composed by end of this year !

    Doing remixes of existing songs, is one way to get the creative juices to kick in....

    I write about 15-20 songs a year. I have written over 100 songs some really good some very bad lol. I would like to make midi files of them but i havent found a good midi program that can make files somewhat accurate and isnt so difficult to use!

    20 in a year is definitely not that much. I've written about five different 3-5 minute classical pieces in the past week or two. I haven't any idea how many songs I write in a year, especially between guitar, bass, and then once I start thinking about midi composition.

    Also, writing a lot doesn't at all mean it all sounds the same. That's why you use different keys, modulation, time signatures, etc... The only time I ever feel that I'm repeating myself is when I used to play in bands and so everything would sound really similar because we were going for a certain style, but I've definitely learned a lot since then and definitely try to be dynamic with the pieces I write. One day I'll start writing a bluesy/rock guitar song and the next I'll try to write a violin duet.
