I am just curious what your songwriting setup is like.
Me, I just prefer the laptop on top of the piano with the recorder app loaded, my songwriting journal open, a bible and a cup of hot coffee.
My alternate setup consists of no instrument; most likely sitting in a coffee shop with a notepad. I write better melodies when I am not trying to shoe-horn them into the ole’ familiar chord progressions and riffs. I have an Olympus voice recorder, as well as a recording app on my phone.
