Experiencing Songwriters Block? No more.

Writing and composing songs is not just about becoming the next rockstar or to sell music to millions of fans. If you have already written songs then you know how its like.

There is just something inside you that you feel the need to be creative and create music. Its totally awesome to be able to create your own music and there is nothing more fulfilling than seeing a song grow from a single note to a complete piece.

But sometimes its just so difficult, and you’re not sure what to do or where to go. The only method you probably know how to write songs is using the ‘trial and error’ method. Unfortunately, if you use this songwriting approach exclusively, it is very limiting and often results in hitting road blocks. I know, because I have been there! Trying to write something and make everything ‘fit’, not knowing what to do and feeling alone. It sucks!


Songwriting Finesse

What if there was a way to learn how to create the exact emotions in your songs? What if you could instantly create a chord progression that projects the feeling you want to express? Imagine if you knew exactly what to do and how to create the sounds that you want. Imagine if you knew how to write a melody for your chords and lyrics. Writing songs would just come easy to you, and you would be churning out songs like a songwriting machine!

There is a BIG difference between noodling around trying to write a song by ‘fluke’ and actually knowing what to do to achieve the sounds that you want. You may get brilliant ideas by noodling around on your guitar, but if you don’t know how to use your ideas and turn them into cool songs, what’s the point?
