  • Hello there GMC, welcome to the Songwriting lesson! :) In this lesson we will go through one basic songwriting process and do a simple song in one key that I wrote specially for this occasion. The song itself doesn't have the lyrics so we can concentrate more on making music this time! :)

    By going through this lesson we will hopefully learn some nice tips and advices on how to build our own songs in the future. You can find some nice theory explaining too.

    I must say many thanks to Andrew Cockburn who helped me during the making of the lesson by doing a great narration job! Also Andrew and I have put together a Spoken Video (Slow Video 1), where Andrew gave some nice advices and directions on how to deal with this lesson the best.

    So have fun composing and have fun playing guys! :)

    For this lesson I chose Dmajor key. Bellow you can see the Dmajor scale along with intervals that will help you to build chords required for this lesson.
