Songwriting Tip:

Don't throw anything away, Bounce everything down and tag the audio with one of four tags: Fragment, Ideas, Riff, Bin.

Fragment: a section where the idea is there
Ideas: good song starts
Riff: bass lines, guitar riffs etc
Bin: discarded ideas

Once you've tagged a lot of stuff, you will discover you have WAY more good ideas than you ever thought you had. You just select one of the tags on the sidebar and with Quickview, easily go through and listen to a bunch of music you created.
I can promise you that not only will you get inspired by your own work, but you will also discover gems that you weren't crazy about initially or, ideas that you got stuck on. You will even find stuff in the bin tag that is a lot better than what you thought it was.

Just realized how cool the key change to the solo is in "Don't Fear the Reaper" - A minor to the chromatic mediant key of C minor using common pitches /thread
#musictheory #blueoystercult #guitar #songwriting
The song is in an Aeolian A minor but we get that G# sounding like a leading note after the fermata Am chord before the solo enters. The G# and C (from the Am) are reinterpreted as the third (Ab) and 5th of an Fm chord in the first solo arpeggio (F Ab C)
which then moves to a G7/F arpeggio (F-G-B) with the bass now staying consistent - these become iv and V[4/2] in the new key. We then get a solo in a functional C minor, where leading notes are raised.

With #COVID19 restrictions continuing, we've created a new way to support older adults to #connect and be #creative. Introducing the #musichotline... a thread /1
Do you know someone who likes music but doesn't use the internet? Our friendly, professional musicians can give them a ring. To chat about their favourite music, play and sing together, and even write some new songs too! #songwriting #composition /2
Our idea was inspired by conversations with local people who are feeling isolated. The Music Hotline will support people to build connections, express their thoughts and ideas, and feel happier in the moment #creativeageing #music #art #community /3

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH
