10 Tips on How To Be A Better Songwriter (Number 3 is a Kicker)

by The Tunedly Team

No matter where you are on your songwriting journey, there will always be room for improvement. It could be you have a problem with creating effective hooks. Or it could be that your vocab is not broad enough to develop killer rhymes. It could even be that you have difficulties coming up with good songwriting ideas.

Whatever the case, it doesn’t have to be a blot on your songwriting career. The good thing about writing songs is that the more you do it, the better you will get. At the moment, you probably already have a good idea as to where you’re at in your career, which means you understand/know your strengths.

As such, becoming better might mean paying attention to what your weaknesses are as it relates to writing songs that listeners will appreciate. You may also just need to plug into the right information and practices, which when applied to your life, will make all the difference.

With that said, check out these songwriting tips that are bound to help make you a better songwriter, once applied. By the way, number three is a kicker!
