Back in the late 70s, Nick Gilder had a one hit wonder with, “Hot Child in the City.” A few years later, Ricky Skaggs had a hit with, “I’m Just a Country Boy.”
Together, those two titles illustrate what kind of songwriter you are.
Lemme ‘splain that.
There are two main categories songwriters fall in.
Both need your technique and craft chops up to par…
Both need expression…
Both need the element of emotion…
But when all the water’s boiled out of the pot? Only one will care to study another element which is crucial to that type of songwriter.
Without it? Kiss your ambitions goodbye.
Gladly though, if you are the other kind of writer, you don’t even give a hoot about that study. It appeals to you like Jaw Breaker candy on dentures.
The two songwriter perspectives are as different as a hot child in the city and a country boy.
Without identifying which you are, you’re prob’ly wasting your time writing.
Thankfully, there’s an easy fix.
Just one of the things we’ll cover in May’s issue of TuneBooster. Plus, we’ll discuss in detail, a technique which will make your lines turn heads faster than Linda Blair’s in the Exorcist.
