Core, generalized elements of a Lyricist vs Composer and how ... -- to better, enable fulfillment of the "needs_composer", "needs_lyricist" tags that don't exist, fulfilled well, or at all, and -- first brought up in the question for musicians, forum by kc5. --Link this back there? Do so, if want to.
So, can't "format" text well here but:
1) Strongly opinionated seeking constructive outlet, writes
1) Loves to create sound, composes
1) Can't separate the various "melodies" that make up their song
2) May LOVE to have a composer engage it to the/a next level
3) May, (may), be able to mentor, or VICE VERSA (not implying lyricist have an upper hand, so to speak )
--- Let the greater minds here, run with this, and someone/many compile the accumulation of core granular of value, --esp. the redundant. The "redundant" elements, ARE the ones we seek, (patterns of opinions aggregated), in the "happy surprise" of Qualitative Research, the -- gestalt.
(Qualitative vs Quantitative, by it's "nature", is of greater value, [lots of posts, opinions, didactically explained!), with -- lots of it to consider. Then, it's hard to deny the Qualitative nature, is not in fact Quantitative, -- a premise, to qualify, and is imo.)
There is likely ?, prior research into this, but, -- I only care about what the folks here think, -- since, are distinctively unique "here"... don't want to pollute with prior supposition, roll-ups of possible "krappe".
I would suggest, any, all, just comment, not necessarily "review" or comment on comment, -- give YOUR OPINION FIRST... it matters.
(And, if you think it's a "stupid" opinion, I (generally speaking), especially, want to read it... I've been told most of what I say was stupid... -- turns out, wrong to the level of > 6-figures, in life, secular, valuations.) The life of someone in "R&D", faces new, as stupid, daily, -- just how it is.
-- So, naturally, a musician too LOL!
