MMADAAA Session Two: The Ins and Outs of the Songwriting Industry: Access All Areas Conference at The Lounge Room Gosford

Access All Areas
Session Two
The Ins and Outs of the Songwriting Industry: Gina Jeffreys and Rod McCormack #mmadaaa17

A prevalent issue in songwriting by new writers, is the use of too many words, lyrics rushed. #mmadaaa17

Write out your fave song, and study the structure & rhyme scheme – try to emulate that. #mmadaaa17

If your song title asks a question – answer it in the song. Tell the full story. Stick to the subject. #mmadaaa17

Take your fave song, look at the lyrics, think about the meter–count syllables. Exercise: Write new lyrics based on the old song. #mmadaaa17

#Lyrics “To say much, in so little time, with so little space… is really hard to do. So do it well.” – Rod McCormack #mmadaaa17

Lyric writing rules are always flexible. What works could literally be reversed and still work. #mmadaaa17

“The number one secret to success: is kindness and helping others. If you’re an assh-le that negative word will spread like wildfire…” #mmadaaa17
