the number one enemy for most writers. Every writer knows that the hardest part
about writing is not in writing itself but the ability to sit down and start.
Some writers plan their work extremely well but they are big failures when it
comes to execution.
Sitting down to
write is not easy. And even if you manage to sit down, starting your task or
project is daunting. Writers who don’t fight resistant never achieve anything
A songwriter is an expert whose main work is to write lyrics and melodies in songs. The songwriter profession, similar to other professions requires one to be creative, passionate and have a love for writing. A songwriter is also required to understand how to work with the latest music technology including computer sound editing, sequencers, and more.
A songwriter will create songs for other artist or bands for them to perform but the credits will remain his/hers.
Songwriters also partner with artist and other songwriters when it comes to creating materials for their shows.
To be a professional songwriter, you must be able to create lyrics and write melodies. There is huge a difference between a lyricist and a songwriter in that the former knows how to write lyrics but does not know how to write melodies. That means an artist will have to come up with their melody.
Here’s a tip to assist you when the day comes that you are asked to write for a specific band or artist. Listen to as much of the recorded work of the band or artist as you can. Familiarize yourself as much as is possible with the style, sound and overall vibe prior to meeting the band/artist. Go and see a show that they are performing in order to familiarize yourself with the audience to which they are targeting themselves.
