  • Songwriter Tip:

    A song needs to do three basic things to impress a listener, a triangle if you will. A song needs to draw the listener in with an interesting lyric. A song needs to be ‘catchy, as a song must please the ear rather than just reading it like a poem. Lastly a song needs to have good sound structure. If you have all three sides as strong as possible from the songwriting triangle, you will give your song it’s best chance at success. If you have a weak side of the triangle or more, generally your song does not have a very good chance at pleasing listeners. It is suggested that you always continue improving your writing in those three areas. Study songs and look at those three areas within songs that are successful.
