Watch the 1-2-3 Songwriting online guitar lesson by Ravi from 1-2-3 Songwriting

Welcome to 1-2-3 Songwriting! The creative process is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a musician. Whether or not one aspires to be a songwriter, musicianship can only be enhanced by understanding the music that we play from the inside. However, becoming a songwriter or improving your songwriting is an unparalleled artistic achievement for the musically inclined. It is a journey into your soul; an expression of your being.

Songwriting is an intimidating endeavor for many. As one who studied classical composition in high school and college but always found my muse (and career) as a singer-songwriter in pop and rock and roll, I certainly know that songwriting discipline comes with challenges. What do I do with a blank page? How do I get past writer's block? How can I turn this chord progression or riff into a song? My composition teacher used to frequently tell me that inspiration is a luxury. Perhaps it is, but we should always seek it out. Sometimes we need to invite inspiration, or just start creating a song without it until the creative process itself generates it. It happens all the time.

1-2-3 Songwriting teaches you how to find and develop your own process for writing great songs. I'll teach you how to generate story ideas, chord progressions, or turn that riff gnawing away in your mind into a sonic masterpiece that will make you proud. Best of all, this process is fun, yet sometimes challenging, but always rewarding. By the end of this course you will have at least three new songs, at least three different writing processes, and a blueprint for the rest of your songwriting journey. So, roll up your sleeves and together lets create some magic!
