How To Write A Song In 3 Days
In this course I walk you through the exact process I use to write songs that I love within the time limit I set myself. In this case that time limit is 3 days. To help you further I have broken this course into 3 sections to represent each day it takes to write your songs. I have done this so I can work though the process with you as you write your songs. Day 1 Lyrics, Day 2. Melody, Day 3. Perfect and Perform!
Will I Really Be Able To Write A Song In 3 Days?
In short, YES. 100% YES! Over the last few years I have struggled to start a song, finish the that song and still love it by the end of the process. When I realised my writing process wasn’t serving me in the best possible way I decided to challenge myself, set a time frame and work within that to produce a finished song. It worked, I started finishing my songs more efficiently and most importantly, I was happy with the finished product. I didn’t lose inspiration for each song I wrote because I wasn’t spending days and even weeks trying to perfect every tiny little detail. Now when I’m writing my music I’m almost always happy with how it ends and that’s why I’m here. I want to share with you this writing process that has changed my productivity and leveled up my writing skills.
Very good course. Sounds like he has lots of experience. To the point and succinct which I imagine would be quite hard in music as each element could have hours spent explaining. Another lecture or course that would be cool and beneficial would be to elaborate on how to play different styles of music and the different elements that make up those styles which could be used as the progression from this course. Roman numerals or numbers would be handy under the chords when designing the chords progression for the song. Was very insightful and I plan to use this to assist in song writing. Thank you!
Very clear step by step. it gave me lots of ideas as well as confirmed what I’m doing is on the right track.
