    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Some of the most powerful hooks are derived from taking a simple melody and modifying it ever so slightly. Why does that make it powerful? Hooks need to be predictable and not predictable at the same time. If there is a degree of predictability then the listener will be able to relate to the song more quickly. For instance, how many of you have said in your mind, ‘that would be so cool if this song did this…’ and then the song took the same direction you wanted it to go. Immediate satisfaction.
