How many times have you heard the phrase…
This is what separates the boys from the men.
Recently, I slipped my pigs back over the boy’s side of the line. Know why?
It has a lot to do with great songwriting and songwriting philosophy at Tunesmith Tips.
It’s like this…
Recently, my friendly web guy suggested the Tunesmith Tips Facebook page ought be put in the posts.
Admittedly, as of this writing, Tunesmith Tips hasn’t focused on either Facebook or Twitter.
I like to keep things simple, but I thought it’d be okay to start working in that direction.
The bottom of the email versions of these posts has a tag…
“The post XXXXXXXX appeared first on Tunesmith Tips.”
I thought I’d make easy work of it. Find out where that little tag is, alter it with a links to Facebook and Twitter, and no more worries.
I googled the key phrase, Found an article. And started following instructions.
Nothing they said matched my computer screen. Nothing.
I hate that.
I REALLY HATE that!
So, I admit it. I got sucked in.
I started poking around my web settings.
Reading all this technical crapola. Tring to find out where to find this stupid sentence.
Finally, I realized I got sucked into a bunch of technical bullspit which makes my work no fun at all.
I’m a songwriter, not a tech ‘gooroo.’
I used to be…
But I’m just not into that schtick anymore.
So, I jumped my little piglets back over the boy’s side of life, and planned on a manual workaround, and that was good enough for me.
Fortunately for me, my friendly web guy stepped in with a clickable link in email which took me right where I needed to be.
Thanks friendly web guy.
I tell you what I am though…
I’m just like a lot of you out there.
Want to learn how to do something, without having to get out a technical manual or dictionary.
Google has tech info up the assonance if you’re into that sort of thing.
Just like that word. Assonance.
It’s a ten dollar songwriting word for saying… it rhymes good.
There’s ten dollar words for everything.
Some of the word Nazis out there like to flip them around to make you believe they’ve advanced to the men side of life.
Awww. To quote Church Lady from SNL, “Isn’t that special?”
Look, you can write killer tunes without having to learn or flip high-dollar words around.
That’s what Tunesmith Tips is about. Keeping things simple.
Like this month’s issue.
I show you ways to find titles even a village drunk could find sitting at the bar.
And no, it isn’t eaves dropping on the bar flies.
Plus, even though titles are easy to find, there are elements to include in them to help make them more colorful or memorable. I give you 13 ways for that.
Almost three dozen places to find titles, some of which you’d probably not thought of,. And not only are they excellent for finding titles, but great for picking up on the language specific to the topic you’re writing about or genre.
Plus, of course there are the Skin in the Game Exercises, Solo Exercises, and months’ worth of object writing topics you won’t find anywhere else.
And, I’m practically giving it away.
Get your songwriting lovin’ here. https://www.tunesmithtips.com/tunebooster/
