Songwriting: I Let Go: Music Exploration

Showing the process of writing a Twist of Zen song from an idea — in this case one of Leon’s poems. Shown here is an exploration of testing different sounds. I’m using a Fender Mexican Telecaster equipped with some EMG’s and an Epiphone ES 335 to see which sound I like better and also to see which one plays easier with an E-Bow, which will be utilized in the final recording. Since the basic chord structure has already been worked out (See the Songwriting Video) I’m just exploring some of the subtleties of what may or may not appear later. There is no beauty here. Just exploration. The finesse will come once the drum tracks and other guitar and bass parts are recorded. As will be shown in the next video.

    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    If you have a song and you’re ready to send it out but something (or somebody!) is telling you that it’s not quite ready, listen to them. Remember this: great songs are not written, they’re rewrittenÉand rewrittenÉand rewritten. The point here is that rarely are creative endeavors completed on the first pass. Think of all your songs as drafts, or ‘starts’ until they get published.
