If you are interested in some free advice on how to make your lyrics, music, song writing, mixing better, consider visiting one of the links below. They are all free forums where you can post your song and or lyrics and have other songwriters listen and offer their opinion. All you have to do is return the favour. Listen to their songs and offer your opinion.
Friends and family will mostly say nice things about your music and they may or may not know the difference between a good song and a song that has room for improvement. For honest, informed opinions, these forums are the place to go. I’ve spent most of my time at the first link below, but I’ve had songs reviewed at the others as well.
