In this weeks video I’m talking about songwriting to tracks. Songwriting to tracks is a great way to inspire yourself when writing. Whether you aren’t a musician and you struggle with the harmony side of songwriting. Or whether you’re a musician but often find yourself stuck in a rut. In the video I show you where you can go online to get tracks that will inspire you in your songwriting. All the links I mention are included below.

This Beginner Finger-Picking video introduces an easy, useful pattern that professional guitarists and songwriters use frequently. Landslide by Fleetwood Mac is a great example! Here’s a plan: 1) Memorize The Pattern; 2) Play It Slowly, watching your right-hand fingers carefully; 3) Gradually pick up speed while keeping your fingers relaxed (this is important!!) Lastly, judge your progress in terms of weeks, not days. Playing anything well on the guitar requires a LOT of repetition, more than you’d think, more than you’d prefer !! Stick with it! It’s worth it and you can do it !

At 14-years-old, Beartooth’s Caleb Shomo started his career when he joined as the keyboard player to his friends’ “electronic, weird” band, but looking back at that time now, Shomo says he has grown into a completely different musician. He says he strives for honesty in his songs and rejects the idea of making music for the radio or singles designed to make money. CreativeLive sat down with Shomo to talk about his songwriting process and tips for aspiring writers.

I’m going to make a lot of videos on songwriting tips and techniques. This songwriting tip covers how to write songs with a pick-up melody before the chorus. I give a lot of examples of hit songs that use this songwriting technique:
