As a Songwriter, It’s Important to Know There Are Methods You Can Use in Your Songs to Get People to Want to Hear Your Music
We’ll Talk About Those Methods Here…
From: Anthony Ceseri
Re: Writing Songs Your Listeners Will Be Excited About
Dear Songwriting Friend,
Have you ever had any of these things happen with your music?
- You wrote a song you felt was really strong, but it just didn’t get the response you hoped for. You were thinking it would be the song to propel you to greatness, but it never happened.
- You had a song that people told you they loved, but still no one actually bought it or told their friends about it.
- You submitted a song to a radio station or for placement in a tv show or film, but never heard back from anyone, leaving you to believe your song wasn’t up to their standards.
- You posted your song to a social media site, thinking you’d get a ton of great feedback, but hardly anyone commented on it at all. And if someone did, it was one of your friends.
- Or maybe you’ve written a great song that had some success, but you haven’t been able to recreate that experience for yourself. (By the way, if that’s the case, you probably lucked into what works without understanding what it was. That’s why you weren’t able to make it happen again.)
If you’ve experienced any of these scenarios you just may need to know the specific elements that most successful songs have in common. After all, those elements are what’s making them appealing to listeners. Writing something that’s “cool” is one thing, but to have it be something desired by a lot of people is a something entirely different.
The great part is you can incorporate these elements into your music without compromising yourself as an artist. You might be afraid that if you learn or apply certain techniques to your music, your songs will be too cookie cutter. You don’t have to worry about that. There are plenty of approaches you can use that will make your music better, without forcing it into a sound you’re not interested in. You’ll keep all your creativity, without becoming a “cookie cutter” artist. It’ll just make your songs more desirable to hear. By taking certain approaches to songwriting, you can greatly increase the chance of your listener wanting to own it.
Do You Want to Be an Innovator?
I used to think I was the greatest songwriter around. The truth was I was far from it, because I hadn’t learned any of the concepts that can make a song great.
I wanted to be an innovator and do whatever I wanted, but I didn’t realize that before you innovate you have to know the methods that have worked again and again. Then you can stray from them. If you just do whatever you what, whenever you want, without learning, it’s a recipe for a song that’s just messy. Believe me, I learned that the hard way. I once had a song that went from rock, to funk, to jazz all in the same song! I thought it was great because it was original, but needless to say my listeners had no idea where I was taking them with that kind of music. I was trying to innovate before I knew anything about what makes a song successful.
Then I realized that once you know the ideas that go into a successful song, you can use them to make your song great, or you can creatively stray from those same ideas to make your song innovative. Either way, you win. But you have to know what those concepts are first.
Once I realized my songs weren’t working, I decided to build a solid songwriting education for myself and make it my mission to know what makes songs listeners want to hear. I read books, and went to seminars and workshops given by the best and most accomplished songwriting teachers around. I learned all the best tips, tricks and techniques there are. Some of what I learned worked and some didn’t. But the stuff that worked, worked incredibly well.
As I started to learn more and more about songwriting, I developed the ability to see what made successful songs work so well, while other songs didn’t It became almost instantaneous when I listened to a new song.
Apply The Best Ideas to Your Music
Once I realized I could see songs in this way, I realized I’d have to put these ideas into an EBook to be able to give other songwriters the ability to clearly see what can make their song work, while sparing them information that doesn’t work. Not to mention saving them time too.
And that’s what I’ve done. I took all the best information on melody writing, lyric writing, chord progressions and even coming up with song ideas and put it into my EBook called How to Write Songs That Sell.
This EBook will teach you two methods for writing a song from start to finish. The first method is called the Find Inspiration Method, where you’ll learn how to specifically draw inspiration and get ideas from other songs, and turn them into ideas that are completely your own. You’ll be able to dismember a current song, examine the parts, change them and then put them back together to create a whole new song of your own. You’ll never understand an existing song (or your own song) so well as when you take this approach.
The second method you’ll learn is the Do It Yourself Method, where you won’t be relying on other songs at all. It’ll show you how to create songs people want to hear completely from your own brain.
If you decide to combine parts of these two methods together, you’ll see great results. Great artists are always looking to other artists for ideas, while at the same time innovating from their own minds. If you combine the two methods, you have a great opportunity to do that yourself.
And you’ll learn both the Find Inspiration Method and the Do It Yourself Method for each major component of your song: melodies, lyrics, chord progressions and even your song’s overall idea.
In the Melody Section, I’ll Reveal to You:
- What the 2 components of a melody are, and how changing anything aside from those two components won’t affect your melody at all. (page 62)
