New instructional songwriting video is up on YouTube!
Get “The Essential Secrets of Songwriting” 6-eBook Bundle, and take your songwriting further than you’ve ever taken it before.
So I’ve just completed a new video, “How Songs Change Key From Start to Finish”, and I hope you find it helpful.
You may want to watch the video a few times to get all the points. Basically, it describes how many songs will subtly change key as they proceed, and this is done to keep it sounding fresh and interesting.
But how do we do that? What are the normal key relationships between verse, chorus and bridge? The video describes this concept by using songs by:
- Sam Hunt (“Take Your Time”)
- Foo Fighters (“Rope”)
- The Beatles (“While My Guitar Gently Weeps”)
- Justin Timberlake (“Mirrors”)
- Carole King (“You’ve Got a Friend”)
I hope you enjoy it and find it useful. As I say, you might benefit from watching it a few times – I covered the concepts quickly!
