Saturday Songwriting: Off the Table

This week I’m sharing two musical ideas using BEAD Guides Chord Flow that I think of almost like a seesaw, because I feel like they balance each other. I don’t think there’s really any musical principle that makes that true—it’s just the way I feel.  Each is probably the most common change made to the left and right neighbor in BEAD Guides Chord Flow.  Check it out below!  

Last week we had a great Fearless Songwriting Challenge. The Fearless Songwriters collectively wrote a total of 65 songs. Not too shabby. 

The next challenge starts in just a few weeks on Sunday February, 7th. It’s the annual take over of the Fearless Challenge by Beth DeSombre. She approaches the prompts just a tad differently than I do, harvesting suggestions from performing songwriters in the community.  Read the FAQ (Fearlessly Asked Questions) or join the weekly email to learn more!.
