  • Songwriter Tip:

    Here’s a tip about splitting up the songwriting credit if you write as part of a team or a band. Since the only parts that officially define the song are it’s melody and lyrics, unless a band (or team) gets together and decides to share credit in some different fashion the person or persons who come up with the lyrics and tune are the writers. The original chord progression can be included in that as well, but frankly doesn’t have to be. Every chord in a song can be changed, and so long as the melody and lyrics remain the same, from a legal standpoint, it’s still the same song, just with a different arrangement.
