working the process of songwriting

My wife and I listened to a young lady last night. She has so many lyrics and she has melodies, but I was encouraging her, coaxing her, almost pressing upon her to place the voice into the music. I told her to sing it This is sort of a ‘documentary” of me re-working one of my songs. I am trying to find the correct sound for it, and I am also reworking some of the lyrics. I think as a songwriter– the main emphasis is on the Lyric– and then there is equal reflection placed upon “what do I clothe” this message with? Is there a reason I will choose a minor dischordant chordal structure and then transistion it to a major Key? All of these go through my damaged brain… in the end, it is a struggle to point someone towards Jesus, to bring Glory to God in whatever way I can. It is a call to “think upon these things”. It is a response to the LORD in the Old Testament when He challenges us “Stop, let us reason together”. I hope this video ( probably viewed by 4-5 people) will help someone.

    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    How do you know that you are ready to do a demo of your song? First: you will have gone over every aspect of the song, every word, every note, every syllable. Second, you will have gone over it again. Third, you will have gotten feedback from objective critics (family and friends don’t count.) Fourth, you will have implemented whatever revisions you deemed appropriate as a result of the feedback that you got and pored over every note, etc. again. Now you may be readyÉ
