07 Jan NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION 7#: TAKE A LEAP AND PUBLISH THAT SONG ONLINE
Every songwriter and music maker has been there at some point in time.
You’ve written song… and you put some music to it… but you are just too scared to put it out there for the world to listen to.
So a great resolution for this year is to make the leap and put it up for people to hear.
And there are great options to do that now. Services like SoundCloud, and many others, giving a platform for you to get your work out there.
And most of them are free or cost hardly anything.
As they say, one song is like a thousand memories. So share a few thousand memories today.

Why write a song?
That’s a very personal question. It can simply be for fun, full stop. For some, it’s a way of expressing what they feel, but can’t speak about. Sometimes the words will pour out of you, other times, you might stare at a blank page for an hour. Sometimes, you’ll hear a melody in your head while in aisle five at the grocery store, or perhaps while driving, you will see something that reminds you of an event that happened a long time ago, but changed your life forever. For better or worse.
For many people, there are things that we can’t get out of our head…that’s a good starting point, let’s get that thing, those words, out of our head and down on paper, just write them all down faster than you have ever written…now rearrange them into some order, maybe finding a rhyme or two where you can. Now strum two or three chords on that old guitar you haven’t touched in years, or that new guitar you just bought, or that secondhand one you just scored a bargain on.
It feels good…dare we say…therapeutic. Sure we dare to say that, even though it has got four syllables! It feels good to understand and it feels amazing to feel understood. That’s what songwriting can do.
