Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question…

Q: Over the last year, one of the main interests I’ve had is with songwriting and recording. It’s not going too bad, but I have concerns. They are mostly with how my song structures, arrangements and recordings sound weak. Can you make a lesson covering the “strengthening” of a songs structure. I need to have some ways to strengthen the arrangements and the recording of my songs. Thanks for all the lessons!

A: One of the most exciting and involved periods of our musical development is when we begin arranging and recording our original music. It is important to keep in mind that there are multiple layers to the process of arranging and the eventual recording of a song. Arranging and recording isn’t a quick process and it should never be rushed. In this lesson I cover several important ideas that will help with the “Strengthening of Song Structure.” These will include; altering the feel of the meter, layering guitar parts, (in unison, and through harmonies). And, composing themes that build and repeat to draw the listener in and help them anticipate certain melodic and harmonic movements.

Songwriting is a creative process, but there are still key guidelines and formulas that ALL of the great songs and songwriters follow. Songwriting on Guitar covers all of these essential musical rules in layman’s language, but Songwriting on Guitar is so much more than a ‘textbook’ approach to songwriting; it’s an immersive, contextual and highly creative process that you play and compose your way through. No tedious theory or boring exercises to work through here. In fact, you will likely create hundreds of your own motifs and song ideas as you journey through Songwriting on Guitar.
