MY CURRENT PROJECT
|The recommended book|
I am now attempting my second assignment (week two) and evaluating the first assignment of five fellow students (anonymously). I am doing it not to form a career in songwriting but for pleasure. However, I am also finding it useful for my writing because a lot of the techniques in songwriting are similar to techniques for poetry. There are chances for students to upload a song and I will need help with that (enter IT techie son from stage right!).
I have found with this course that I have had to unlearn some of my methods of lyric writing. That's been hard. I always studied songs and then use my instinct, but one thing I have got right is song structure which I've been using since I was eighteen. Week two has been very informative and this morning I have written a verse and chorus! Maybe I'll even be tempted to did out my guitar again.
