If you’re anything like me, you’re probably always looking for ways to improve your songwriting. I’m always learning songs by the greats, pulling their work apart and trying to find out new ideas that I can apply to my songwriting.
But sometimes you feel like you’ve hit a brick wall – that you’ve used all the chords you know, that all your melodies sound the same, all your riffs sound like someone else’s.
Songwriting Workouts can help you break through that wall.
What are Songwriting Workouts?
‘Brilliant – just what people like me want to know – concrete ideas with examples instead of just trying to wing it.’ Carol Manser – Song writing Moderator at www.guitarforbeginners.com
Songwriting workouts are short lessons or exercises that focus on specific aspects of songwriting.
They’re a quick, concentrated way of developing your songwriting technique and music theory.
Who are they for?
At my songwriting blog Indiesongwriter.net, I write for songwriters who create original, interesting songs. I don’t help you write top 40 copy-cat commerical songs, I’m not interested in what sells or what is marketable. Instead, I try to help you learn the tools and techniques to write original, creative songs that don’t fit into anybody’s mould.
If you think of songs as a commercial product, Songwriting Workouts might not be for you.
If you think music theory isn’t important, Songwriting Workouts might not be your thing.
If you think of songwriting as an art, Songwriting Workouts are ideal for you.
If you’re interested in the craft and theory of songwriting, Songwriting Workouts are definitely for you.
