Harlan Howard (“I Fall to Pieces”) said good country music is “three chords and the truth.”

When you are trying out words, phrases, and ideas for your song be sure to give yourself time. The creative process needs time to incubate.  Wait…..  think……… ponder…….  decide……. ponder…… and repeat.

ASSIGNMENT:  Write a song.     Record it with singing and guitar OR write out the lyrics with the chords above correct syllables and prepare to record it in class.   If you choose to do both EVEN BETTER!  We will share our new original songs on Monday after Spring Break!

Create something for which you can be proud today and tomorrow.  


Think about FORM.   Intro…Verse….Chorus….Bridge…..Outro.  You get to choose!
