  • Songwriter Tip:

    Stuck? Can’t figure out what to do next? Try collaborating with other musicians out there. The Internet is a wonderful place to meet new and exciting people. Obviously, one of the greatest benefits of collaborating is that you’ll learn how to accommodate other people’s styles with your own. Since you know how to accommodate their styles with your own, that also means that you can learn from their style much easier since you’re trying to integrate it with yours. Collaboration is an excellent learning tool.
