Question 19:

A top music publisher in Nashville is interested in publishing one of my songs, but I’m not sure of all the legalities they are talking about. Should I consult a lawyer who is familiar with the music business before I sign anything?

All I can say to this question is this: It is always a good idea to have a qualified attorney look over any major contract before you sign it. This just makes good sense in any business, and YES, Songwriting is a business just like any other business, with huge profits to be made. Should you consult a lawyer who is familiar with the music business? YES, if at all possible. Entertainment and Music Business lawyers know all the ins and out’s of the music business.

ADDENDUM: I just want to add that this is all related to signing major contracts like in Music Publishing, or having your song recorded by some major artist. You don’t really need to sign a contract with a co-writer when you’re writing a song together.However I haved signed co-writer contracts with collaborators but only because they wanted it. They wanted something in writing. It’s not really neccessary though when co-writing with somebody.

The songwriting tips in this video are eye openers for songwriters in every genre. Master this technique and you will be unstoppable even by producer standards.

A given chord progression can only yield certain notes as singable. The typical method by most songwriters is to write the music first thereby reducing the possible melody choices. How about going at it from the melody first approach? This experiment shows a mathematical comparison which blows the typical approach out of the water giving you the maximum amount of choices.

This unique approach is also organic to the individual using it. For example: If you like the major third note sung over the root in Dorian, you would obviously choose this interval regardless of whether or not the progression was written first. Either way you get triple the options.
