Yesterday I did something I didn’t want to do.
See, was trying to come up with some new ideas for a series of videos to post on my YouTube channel. I couldn’t get this one idea out of my head. I mentioned it to Pam, and she thought it was a good idea. The only problem was, as I said already, I didn’t want to do it.
The topic? Songwriting. I love songwriting. I really do. Nothing we do in the studio happens until a song is written. I’ve written lots of songs over the years, but I’ve never talked much about my songwriting process. I’ve only ever written a song on camera once for a video series for my VIP Members.
When I thought about a video series on songwriting, one thing I knew for sure: I don’t want to “teach” songwriting. That feels pointless. “Hello, my name is Joe, and in this video I will give you my 4-step formula for writing a song.”
I’m kicking off a new STUDIO TOUR series of videos this week. I’ll be heading over to various studios (mostly home studios) around Nashville and showing off their setup.
For the first video, my buddy Drew Middleton of Nashville Demo Factory let me come crash his place. Check out his website:
