Jean Paul Zoghbi commented on Jean Paul Zoghbi's blog post Inspiration - Where does it come from?
"I agree Zinos and Schletty, it is mostly hard work. But music should convey a feeling or a mood. And the initial idea should come from somewhere, then you start developing it. Even while delveloping, teh melodic phrases start falling into place, you…"

Richard Schletty commented on Jean Paul Zoghbi's blog post Inspiration - Where does it come from?
"I agree with Zinos. 90% toil. 15% inspiration. The math doesn't quite work out because inspiration is a flagellating enigma. Just do it and don't worry about catching a flyer. If it doesn't come, you probably should be doing something else - like…"

"Congrats Chris on winning in the UK Songwriting Contest. Nice song and great results. I also got a runner-up winner in the instrumental genre. Not sure what prizes they have for us. I did'nt get any e-mail from them yet!"

Joe Evans commented on Jean Paul Zoghbi's blog post Inspiration - Where does it come from?
"Oddly I’ve found that my mood doesn’t affect the type of music I write or my ability to write. My main inspirations have tended to be having enough time to compose, literally if given enough time staring at a piano keyboard I’ll find something…"

"Thanks Chris for the info. I actualy have one song that will be sung by a relatively new unknown singer. she might accept singing for the credit and a small share of the sales. But another song I am in discussion with a well known and established…"

Chris Merritt replied to Jean Paul Zoghbi's discussion What's a fair split share for Singer vs. Composer/producer in terms of Royalties/sales?
"When I use a singer on a commercial / promo, I pay them $250 - $1,000 and that's it. If you are looking at a small commercial success, you should probably just do the same. For a very successful commercial recording (really any recording) the PRO…"

David Naranjo replied to Jean Paul Zoghbi's discussion An Orchestral instrumental - "Here at Last"
"Awesome track, very entertaining & positive.
I think you made a fantastic job putting it all together,

on the production side,…"

David Naranjo commented on Jean Paul Zoghbi's blog post Inspiration - Where does it come from?
"There is, however, upon your definition, several other levels of inspiration that can make, lets say, somebody from group 1, to compose things that only group 2 does and vice-versa. Is true that life and experiences are a start point, but cannot be…"

Jean Paul Zoghbi commented on Jean Paul Zoghbi's blog post Inspiration - Where does it come from?
"Yes, exactly. I tend to think Inspiration comes from within and is directly correlated with oen's life's experiences. If that is true, then somone who has lived a great childhood and a happy life, would generally compose positive uplifting music or…"

"@ Jean Paul Zoghbi; magnificent definition.
Not much to add, maybe that with the years, what you called to be from above was originally within.
