Welcome to 'How to write a songs in three days', the XSNoise songwriting series with Christopher Richter. I will take you through the songwriting process and teach you one way that you can write a songs. There are many more different process and systems that you can use to write songs. This course only covers one ways to write.
There isn't a right or a wrong way to create a song. But there is a way to make it easier for you to write.
This course takes you through the lyric writing process, choosing chords for your song and then creating a melody for the song. A final recorded version of the song is available at the end for you to hear the end result. I have also provided a backing of the music incase you would like to try your own lyrics and melody over the music.
