January songwriters session

Our songwriting group had a number of new participants last night. Great, we can always use new blood. I just hope these folks continue to come back and it's not just another New Year's resolution...

A couple of concepts that I heard last night are:

- Write the same song three different ways, using different tempos (i.e. 3/4, 4/4, 6/8).

- Clustering - When searching for a different word, write a word, then in a circle around it, write all the different words you can think of.

- Write different versions of the same song for different audiences. For example, the G-rated version vs. the adult crowd.

- Not every line in the song needs words, add some oohs or ahs.
