Hello. I'm in my late 20's and have been in love with music since I was a child. I have strongly been thinking of becoming a songwriter/singer. I don't play an instrument and would like to know if anyone can give me some advice on where to start? Thanks.

Guitar is fast to learn, the basics at least, and fits well with vocals.
Major and Minor pentatonic scales, modes and blues scales are the classic way to insert a melody.
Think ""My Girl"' as an example of minor pentatonic, for example, Age Of Aquaries, Sundown (Gordon Lightfoot) and the Star Wars theme as an example of modes.
Then you just need the words...
..pass me that treble clef, Mildred.

Write down all of your Ideas. Keep a pencil and paper handy by your bed, because many ideas come at night. I found that if I don't get up and write it down, it's gone forever. If you don't read music,get a teacher, or find someone you can collaborate with. Good luck.
