Writing your first song for this class choose chords you like and where they will be connected.

Find a sentence or idea that is meaningful.  

From there find adjacent ideas and terms that relate.

Record the chords or a phrase.  Listen. Edit?  Go on.  

Creativity is not a given. You have to have “headspace,”  inspiration, a safe environment.
