I currently have about 8 unfinished tracks. I tend not to start a new song unless it is a really specific idea that i cannot use in an unfinished one. I have another 50 or so recorded ‘sketches’ some of them years old but useful when I need something to start on. It’s amazing how leaving a song and coming back to it later (even months or years) can bring new ideas or perspective.
HaHa. I posted this same question a year or so back. I currently have 112 unfinished tracks in various state of completion… or non-completion. I call it my “crap bin”. Very few tracks ever survived this folder once placed in. However, I have a very hard time dragging that folder in the trash and hitting the delete button. So it just takes up hard drive space :/ Cheers!
I have hundreds of unfinished songs! And they span many years and also many different DAWs. Sometimes I’ll make note of one that I’d like to finish working on that I started in the past. But usually if something is good, I’ll know it and see it through to completion before letting it collect dust.

Got about 7-8 unfinished projects (tracks mostly, a few loops), plus a lot of tracks that I made and never did anything with them, so I’ll touch them up sometime soon and submit them here
I’ve got nothing. Completely empty sketchbook for the first time in 30 years. It’s great, I am really looking forward to writing whatever comes next! It’s exciting not knowing what I will compose.
I have about 8-10 unfinished at the moment and a bunch of other ‘bits’ which I tend to refer back to when I have a good verse or chorus and need to add a change to the track.
The first few items I sold online (on another site) were parts of unfinished songs I just uploaded for fun and was quite surprised when they sold.
Some tracks I go back to often, others tend to almost write themselves. Starting with a drum beat, meoldy or chord progression I will improvise over the top with keyboard or guitar and see where it goes.
