The feed-back thread - still going strong into YEAR 11

The Sunday Songwriters club is a stretching exercise for your mind. Arpeggios for the brain cells, so to speak. After all, writing is like playing - to get better, you have to practice.

What I've Gotten out of almost 6 years of SSG

Post by jamestoffee » July 10th, 2014, 8:54 am

This week's topic (Y12W36) to write a different POV from a previous song made me go back over the songs I've written since joining SSG.

Thank you, SSG! :mrgreen:

The first list is organized by POV.
The next list is organized by song style.
The last list is organized by the song's emotion.

Re: The feed-back thread - still going strong into YEAR 11

Post by Vic Lewis VL » August 17th, 2014, 2:21 pm

Hey eveyone, you may or may not have noticed I've been missing for a while...circumstances conspired against me. However, you can' t keep a good man down.. hopefully I can squeeze into that category. Ain't going to type the new song lyrics - 42 - out tonight. Not on my phone. Got to pay a visit to the local library in the AM, maybe a couple of revisions...feels good to be writing again, though! All the best

:-) :-) :-)

Write it Down- Make it Happen

Post by jamestoffee » September 16th, 2014, 4:31 am

I just started reading a book called "Write it Down- Make it Happen" by Henriette Anne Klauser

I'm still not 100% believer in everything presented, and I've only just started the book, but I was laughing at myself when I realized I already followed the technique when it comes to songwriting.....

....after I read the topic of the week, I make a Word document with the title of the assignment. I also make a song file on my DAW.

The practical side is these two files is where I put all the notes and scratch recordings, but it also helps my mindset.

I don't think, "Maybe I might get a song out of this." Instead I think, "This is where this week's song goes....it might not be the best I've done, but it will get done."

Then of course I play around with different ideas to make the best I can for that week, but I've already done the "write it down" part of Write it Down- Make it Happen
