SSG Year 10 Week 5

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.

A couple of weeks back we did one of my favorite songwriters, this week lets imitate one of yours. I really want you to copy their style as much as you can, almost like a Mad Lib fill in the blank, swap the word exercise. Why? So you can see exactly how they peddle their craft, how they make their songs work, how they lure you in as a listener. The point isn't to write like someone else, it's to discover their style and maybe find out something about your own in the process.

If your favorite songwriter is an instrumentalist, sorry about that, go with your second favorite.

Good luck and good writing
