Saturday Songwriting: Eighteen

(I have a secret). 

(I’ve been writing a book about how guitar chords work) 

(That means I’m just plain old writing about how music works, using guitar chords).

In January and into February I woke most mornings to scrawl away for 20 minutes to an hour hashing out ideas. In mid-March I joined a little workshop called Writing in Community. Since then I’ve been up early every weekday doing layout work for the book. 

I’m really excited about sharing this work, which I’ll start doing soon. If you’re following the sheets I post weekly you’ll  recognize the principles of BEAD Guides Chord Flow I explain in the book. The book will simply gather it all in a more organized and complete fashion with a binding. It’s all coming in the near-ash future.  

In the meantime, here’s this weeks prompt and musical idea.

The Prompt:

Here’s a link to Rob Gonsalves’ Art. Find out more about Rob’s work here.
