Not sure if there’s a thread for this already but I figured making one would help people in the pursuit of getting better at writing songs and possibly get a better grasp of music theory and its applications in the process. I feel that I’ve hit a wall as a result of having a minimal grasp on theory. I’ve noticed several pitfalls as a result and I’m willing to bet there are a few others out there like me; struggling to get the most out of a musical idea. I know there are some resourceful people on this forum so hopefully this can be more of an applied demonstration of general dos and don’ts with song writing along with common issues people run into and how to fix them. This first post is more of a gauge to see if anyone else thinks this type of thread would even work here. Any thoughts?
