Write your own songs!
For any guitar players that sing, I highly suggest that you try writing your own songs and get weened off playing cover tunes that somebody else wrote. I wrote my first song in 1981, never envisioning that today I would have close to thirty of my own creations. It's not that hard, once you get clear about what you want to say. Then develop your idea, playing with words that usually rhyme at some point. I personally write my lyrics first, then I play around with different chords and tempos. You just might surprize yourself and your friends with what the creative process can unlock inside of you. Other song writers are no different than me, so give it a try and join our group of "origionals".
