Songwriting Challenge!

Wednesday, July 8, 2015 by Jake Hahn | Blog

Below, I've put together a framework of "raw material" to get you going.

GOAL: start this song - develop this song - finish this song - in 1 week or less!

Keep in mind - you're NOT aiming for perfection here. Just get a fairly solid demo version...a "first draft". Then we'll take it from there.

Ready. Set. Go!

Title: "Steady Hands"

Theme: Write about something you've lost. This could be an object, a person, a relationship etc.. Try to answer the questions. Such as... • how did you handle it? • why is it a loss? • how did you feel before you lost it/them? • how do you feel now? • can you get it/them back? • do you want it/them back?

As always. If you have any questions, shoot me a message or leave a comment below to let me know if I can help!
