Organizing Sound – The Songwriting Blog
Over the past year, I’ve periodically updated a songwriting blog called “Organizing Sound”. I’m working on a practically-oriented guide to songwriting that teaches music theory by getting you to write songs rather than memorize arcane facts.
A simplified work-in-progress version is available on the blog in the form of the Practical Chord Progression series. If you can play first position chords and know some simple strum patterns, you have enough background to follow the series. And before you know it, you’ll understand exactly what this chart means and how it can help you write music.
