What are some good daily songwriting routines that work for you?

The most important thing to do is make a daily appointment with yourself. Keep that appointment everyday. This will create consistency and momentum in your writing. But what to do? Here are a few things to add to the daily routine.

  1. Start a new song. If you have an idea book, use that that to begin writing. Create a title, write lyrics, melody add a chord progression and give the song a form.
  2. Work on existing songs. It is a rare that a song is done in one day. Take an existing song and rework and rewrite it. Make tweaks to the lyrics, melody, chords and form. Make the song better.
  3. Finish a song. Know when a song is complete and finish it. These are just a few things you can do during your daily songwriting routine.

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Here’s a tip to help you begin to learn to write for films. Find a movie that you really enjoy, that you really get into. Rent the movie and put it into your VCR. Turn the sound off and run the film with only the pictures to inspire you. Try putting a towel over the face of the TV and listen to only the soundtrack. Be sure to have a notebook and pen when you do this. If nothing comes to you, don’t give up. Get a different movie and try again.
