Hey All,

Ms Rock Chic came across these two videos. After all these years of musical study, and trying to "make it", all I really needed to do was follow the instructions given. *banging head on desk* grin

Part 1 - https://youtu.be/JV2s0UIPOQY

And for our more advanced viewers...

Part 2 - https://youtu.be/5xIUeNJIrak

I'm sorry to say that JPF and every other song writing site has now been made redundant. I am now going down to the garden and eat worms. smile

cheers, niteshift

I saw that before. I think what it really shows is that a good sounding nicely produced track can make a song seem better than it is. But he's probably got more skills than he's letting on.

I always liked jack blacks songwriting advice in school of Rock

I am going to burn my songwriting notebook today. Probably I will go to a pawn shop and look for a bassoon or another instrument I have no idea how to play (shouldn't be hard). Then I'll make a YouTube video, get a million views and make enough money to buy a cup of coffee at Starbucks.

Wow,
I didn't know there was a Science to Art. No wonder I've been doing it all wrong all these years. They have been telling me all these years I don't need to work anymore, just sit around and collect my welfare check! Maybe that's why that guy cut off his ear. Couldn't collect his royalities. Anybody have a Sousaphone?

He's very clever. This is my favorite of his many hilarious works:

Just reinforces the most important thing: Entertain people. Move people. How you do it is up to you and within anyone's reach if you're creative. No excuses anymore really.
