  • Songwriter Tip:

    Many of the best songs that out there have only a few ideas. Give your ideas time and space to grow. If you only take a couple of ideas, you will find that they can evolve with each other, never having to fight for space. As the song goes on, these ideas can mature, and even meld with each other to bring about new ideas. Please don’t flood your songs with too many ideas. Keep it simple. Build from there.
