Writing a song

Feb 24 – 4pm – 6pm

A place to Start

  • The words should scan and rhyme
  • A common pattern is often useful – eg 12 bar blues
  • Cheerful songs – you can write in C – the white keys
  • Sad songs – write in Am – Still the white keys just start on A
  • The chord scale is C – Dm – Em – F – G – Am -Bdim.

What else can you add?

I was the VFSS Treasurer for a few years then moved on to host the Pickers Circle on Zoom when we were hit by Covid 19 in 2020.
