Songwriting Improvisation vol. 1 PART 1

This is an exercise intended to prime the pump a little bit and keep the channels open clean and wide for those unexpected visitations … ***For all viewers who do not play instruments, sing, or write music- Please be aware that the performance in this video will be quite different from the majority of what you are most likely accustomed to witnessing. -The act of writing a song while simultaneously preforming the song publicly is quite an exciting and, at times even humorous exercise for the person doing it– However, it can often be perceived as meandering/ off key/ off rhythm/ lyrically awkward, even ridiculous.. I am posting my freestyle songwriting videos for the purpose of demonstrating the exercise for other songwriters/ musicians to see and hopefully feel inspired to try for themselves- Many beginner to intermediate level musicians are reluctant to play with, or in front of anyone else- they feel like they “are not good enough”..which is a shame because all anyone needs to create music is a love of music- and some heart- whatever your skill level- even if all you can do is tap your foot unconsciously when listening to the radio– is all you need – ] .. and it just gets better and better I hope to demonstrate to all people who may see my improvisation videos that – 1.) it is a guarantee that you will fuck up, in front of strangers and friends, EVERY TIME you play any music in front of them- be it rehearsed, or improvised.. it is nothing to trip out

    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    The song is an acceptable length for radio play. Probably, no more than 3 1/2 minutes. The demo should not contain musical breaks. The lyrics are honest, believable and heartfelt. Ask yourself, would the singer want to be associated with the tone or message in these lyrics? If the male comes across as weak or the female as a victim, the artist will probably pass on the song. One big no-no is self-pity. I have also been told by other publishers they don’t like to hear begging songs, though its’ been done.
