    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    If you are worried about being labeled as a fraud or a cheat by post dating the copyrights on your CD, don’t worry. Big artists do this even when they have been playing the song live for 10 years or have admitted in interviews that the songs are much older than that. Greg Lake put the copyright date for Lucky Man as 1971 even though he admits to having written the song when he was 12, therefore in 1956.
