I suppose I owe you all an explanation about where I disappeared to for most of February. The answer is obvious of course. I got sucked into the songwriting parallel universe called FAWM (February Album Writing Month). I had a great time and wrote, or co-wrote, 16 songs. You can read about it here, listen to my songs here or here or check out FAWM for yourself here.
Hopefully things will be back on track soon but in the meantime check out the Organising Sound blog. John Thomas Mumm was kind enough to write a nice post about Beatles Songwriting Academy which was an honour as his own site is packed with really great songwriting tips and tricks. There's all kinds of material on chord progressions, avant garde songwriting techniques and all manner of other helpful ideas. John even has a place for you to submit songs that have been written using the songwriting techniques.
Get over there and say hello
