You have a blank page, a pen and no idea what to write about. This moment strikes fear into almost every songwriter… it can be paralyzing!
Don’t worry you’ve got this… take a slow breath. Once you’ve studied the techniques in the Song Starter Kit, you’ll know exactly what to do!
First you set a 5 minute countdown timer on your phone and start writing possible song titles, themes and song ideas…
This is stress free songwriting fun without any pressure. It’s not the struggle it used to be. Instead of arguing with yourself, you just write and write, filling a page with ideas.
As the timer runs out jolting you out of the flow, you take a minute and pick the most promising song topic.
You set the timer again and for ten minutes you let the ideas flow while you fill more pages with ideas, images, emotions, metaphors and lyric fragments.
Some are great, some are terrible… it doesn’t matter because the ideas come as fast as you can write them. You’ve got more ideas than you need, you’ll edit and toss away the weak ideas later.
What could your song sound like? For five minutes you lean back and listen to the possibilities.
You hear the groove from a verse in one of your favourite songs.
You hear the vocal harmonies in one of your favourite choruses.
You hear the guitar accompaniment from the verse of another favourite song that you can adapt for your chorus.
The chord progression from the bridge of another favourite was always intriguing, with a few changes it would complement the verse you heard in your mind’s ear…
You take 5 more minutes and outline the entire song, what you want to say in each verse, the pre-chorus, the chorus and the bridge.
In less than 30 minutes you’ve got a title, the outline of what you want to say in each song section, the “sound” for each section and have half of the lyrics figured out.
You close your notebook and stand up, tomorrow you’ll pick up where you left off, finish up the lyrics and start writing the music… everything is organized, waiting for you to continue tomorrow.
Unleashing songwriting ideas whenever you want,
Adapting song ideas from your favourite songs to use in your songs, and
