I've been interested in the songwriting craft for as long as I can remember. I started writing songs from the age of four. As crappy as they were. ;-)
I had one problem. I knew very little about what it took to write a good song. Till then I had depended solely on inspiration.
So over the years, I did lots of research. I wanted to know what made some songwriters successful while others failed. I wanted to understand what made one song a hit while another went nowhere.
It all started with doing regular searches on the Internet.
Since the early days of the web, I've read article after article, and studied website after website and blog after blog, searching for answers. Looking for clues. Such was my obsession with becoming a good writer.
I've read and downloaded several of the best books and taken many courses. I've watched countless videos and listened to interviews of some of the greatest songwriters who walk(ed) the planet.
In my studies and examining the work of successful songwriters, I've come to the following conclusion:
If you want to be successful, do what successful songwriters do. If you want to write hit songs, you need to do exactly what hit songwriters do.
