Songwriting & YouTube

If you want to learn how to do something, someone has probably made a tutorial of it. I have no interest in becoming a songwriter, but I do subscribe to a couple people who teach a little bit on the topic. For those interested in becoming better writers, I thought the following channels could be useful.

Lyrics 101: Part 2
I'm a big fan of brentalfloss (aka Brent Black), and even hired him to write 2 songs for me ("Good Example" & "Internet People 2"). Aside from posting videogame 'WITH LYRICS' videos, he also teaches kids how to write their own musicals at camp each year. Recently he decided to start a YouTube based class on lyric writing. He uploaded the 2nd video in the series yesterday, and you can also go back & watch Part 1 if you like.

Rhyme (And Why Eminem Is Awesome)
Mike Lombardo is a professional songwriter, and I did an INTERVIEW with him last year. From time to time he has been uploading music lessons onto YouTube as well. He even has a music theory channel on YouTube. Below is an example from his main channel.

  1. Very cool! I was aware of Mike's series of videos on songwriting. But I didn't know Brent Black had one as well. ( I nearly typed, "Brent Alfloss.")
