Most musicians repeat the same pattern over and over again. They walk aimlessly through music stores buying gear they will rarely use, and take lessons on instruments that are too specific for much use in the studio. I'm convinced what most people really want is to be in the director seat, and see their whole vision come together. Even though some will learn to write, sing, and perform, they'll still remain forever stuck when it comes to distributing their music without a producer. What they don't realize is how capable they are to do this themselves, often with the gear they already own.
When you can physically capture your thoughts and musical ideas in the way you hear them in your brain you'll discover a new sense of freedom. You're in charge of making the vibe and setting the groove. The days of looking for a producer who "gets you" will be long gone, saving you time and money.
When you can Produce, you're a force to be reckoned with. But in a good way. Adding the "/producer" to your singer/songwriter title puts you way ahead of the curve. More writers and musicians will clammer to collaborate with you. Doors will inevitably start opening up. Your writing will improve. And you might even meet your soul mate. (ok, that last part is a stretch)
Production techniques and tricks are more part of songwriting than ever before. Whether it's mixing frequencies, use of distortion, harmonics, reverb, balance, drum selection, etc. All these "production" elements can color and affect the song significantly, and it could be argued they are part of the songwriting itself.
Will you still be telling yourself you can't be in the producer seat?
