  • Songwriter Tip:

    Let me start by saying that your friends and family members will most likely be very biased about your music. Ask them what they think if you want a self-esteem booster. Take compliments more to heart from strangers who like your music. The most important thing is that you like the music. Will others like it as well? Maybe, maybe not. If they offer suggestions, consider them. There is no right or wrong way to write a song. There are only songs that people can and can’t relate to.
