    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    One thing you need to be careful of is employing tricks like the unusual interval, the odd chord substitution, the unexpected note, etc. is that if the lyric doesn’t support them, they will stand out as an artificial device. You want to use these devices to give the song the WOW instead of raising the eyebrow of the listener. In other words, don’t write with a crowbar, write with a scalpel.
