If I want to get better at something then I have to do it. I can watch countless youtube videos, read all the books, and listen to motivational speakers all day but if I never put pen to paper (or cursor to Finale) then I’m not going to grow as a songwriter. This new series of posts will be a collection of weekly songwriting exercises that me and my friends are practicing. I’m putting it up here on TWS so that anyone who is interested can join us. If you do join in we would love to hear what you’re working on! Get in touch with us on Facebook, Instagram, or leave a comment below.
Last week’s exercise was to write 5 melodies, no requirement on length or type, just 5 melodies. This week we turn around to focus on the lyrical side of songwriting.
