Lynda The Gigging Musician: Songwriting on the Road TUTORiAL
Writing songs while traveling is a great way for artists to stay productive away from the studio. With an iPad and inexpensive music apps, musicians can develop song ideas from anywhere, whenever the inspiration strikes. Watch author Garrick Chow and his band The Jellybricks write a song while on the road to a gig in New York City. Hit the road with with a touring band and see the tools they use to write, and watch the process of the song taking shape in real time. If you're interested in the more technical side, Garrick will review the mics, cables, keyboards, and apps he uses to record on the road. Then, back at home, he jumps into GarageBand to demonstrate techniques for moving files between the iPad and Mac, as well as mixing and sharing the track. The course wraps up with a full band live performance of the new song in their rehearsal studio.

While there are technically no limits when it comes to songwriting, here are 20 "unofficial" rules that songwriters employ to make songs more engaging and memorable. And it's not just commercial songwriters. These rules are used in many of the popular and GRAMMY-winning songs you hear today. In this course, Cliff Goldmacher reveals tips from the professional songwriter's rulebook, starting with 10 rules about lyrics: staying conversational, using concrete details, and keeping your rhyme schemes the same in similar sections.

Topics include:

* Writing lyrics that are conversational and natural
* Making every line count
* Putting your song's hook at the end of a chorus
* Creating simple and unique melodies
* Keeping song intros short and longer verses at the beginning of a song

Music theory is fundamental to making and playing music. However, no one has taught it in such a user-friendly and songwriting-focused way as we do here, using both keyboard and guitar to demonstrate the techniques. Professional musician Julian Velard starts the course with the building blocks of harmony: notes, scales, intervals, chords, inversions, and basic chord progressions. He then goes into voice leading—showing how to move from one chord to another by changing just one or two notes—and reviews common song forms, from the familiar verse/chorus/verse of pop to the simple verse of the blues. At the end of each chapter, Julian explains the songwriting techniques shown in the chapter within the context of his own original commercially released songs.

Topics include:

* Understanding scales, intervals, and keys
* Triads or three-note chords
* Triad inversions
* Common major-scale chord progressions and cadences
* Voice leading
* Song form elements such as verse, chorus, bridge, hook, and more
* Using common song forms in songwriting

Say you've got a creative spark for a song idea and want to compose, record, and mix it into a song, using Apple GarageBand. In this 90 minute series, Eli Krantzberg shows you how you can use GarageBand to make it all happen, step by step.

Eli starts by explaining the series, and giving you a preview of the song, called "Hello Fun." The next videos are all about Song Buildup, Laying Down the Beat, coming up with a Chord Progression and Baseline for the Verse, creating a Pre-Chorus, then a Chorus.

Once the parts start taking shape, Eli dives into expanding the song with Pads and Pitch Risers, forming an Introduction, and adding String Synths to the Chorus.

With the parts formed, Eli now turns to song structure and developing the arrangement. With the song itself beginning to form, he spends the next few videos showing you how to Add and Edit Vocals and Guitars before finally Finishing off the Mix and sharing it with the world.

If you're new to GarageBand, maybe even to digital music in general, "First Song in GarageBand" will get you started on the path of complete song creation!
