    Well, I feel a bit awkward being the first one to ask for Collaboration...

    But here goes: I Recently started writing a semi-emo/sort of symphonic Metal/almost country song, the idea I had for the back-up was something like the Evanescence song My Immortal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5anLPw0Efmo basically with guitar, Bass, a very sweet piano line and some sweet strings.

    As A note, I am not a fan of distortion guitar, I would prefer as little distortion as possible for this song, thank you.

    I don't have any preferred VOCALOIDs or UTAUs for it, I just thought it should be sung by a female. I sung the lyrics that I have so far (Which is just the Chorus.) mediafire.com ?mhrytt3mvn2
    sorry for the bad audio quality.

    I need background music mostly but basically all I have is the melody of the chorus, a slight idea for the verse melody and the Chorus lyrics. Please help me, thank you for reading.

    The Lyrics thus far:
    There is nothing left for me
    In this world of circumstances
    There is no one loving me
    No one giving second chances

    I think I could do that.
    Piano is my speciality and I prefer accoustic guitar over overdrive too.

    I would recommend to make the melody in the refrain a bit more...
    what's the word.... dramatic? Catchy?

    There is nothing wrong in particular, but for a refrain something like one high note on one silibal in each line really gives more of a feeling that something is happening.

    And I think that applies to soft songs as well.

    But I don't know how much you would interate me into working with the melody.
    Personally I'd like it best to get a general Idea of what you want, which hopefully I have and then give you a BGM and you work your Melody around it.

    Usually I make my bgm themes before the melody.

    But in the end eitherway is fine, just tell me how you want to work this out.

    sy,
    Kentai

    yep +1 for what kentai said already. Checked your chorus sample, to me it sounds more than the end of the 2nd verse and then the chorus come just after, but ya i dont know there is no real rules in music. For guitar riff i think it is better to have a true player doing it, i tried a lot of virtual ones and there is always something missing (exeption for electri6ity that keep amaze me but heh out of money lol )

    And ya problem with the melody coming in mind 1st, it already restrict the chord we can play on, from what i hear roughtly, your melody seems to play on Major chord.

    I am gonna give it a try tho, nothing come by itself without practicing Wink
    And that the point of this board, finding peaple to work with and helping each others Wink

    I know that the idea of writing a Lyrics before the music is odd and rarely done, Koda has said as much often. So when I get someone who's willing to do the music I would love for them to also make changes to the melody that make musical sense.

    I do not know music, I do not pretend to know music. Any music that I produce is purely accidental and based on nothing but what my liver has to say about it.

    My idea is for this song to not sound epic, I want it to be sweet and sad because the idea behind the song is that of a girl who is troubled by her parents' abuse and being hurt by anyone and everyone who claims to love her just to get in her pants.

    Came across that mediafire.com ?zdvdtwg2gze

    Modified the melody a bit. I was also not sure of what rythme you want to achieve so it is more a suggestion of chord, better to have the others suggesting something so you can choose.

    1st part is chord + melody
    2nd part is chord a bit arranged + melody

    Know i am not composing much atm since i am experementing with chord progression, audio mix down and mastering, just hoping it can give you some inspiration Wink
