A love of music and a desire to learn.
The melody of your songs is called “the topline” for a reason… (We are talking about the melody that you are singing the lyrics with)
It’s the “vehicle” that you put your lyrics on top of, so it is literally what would make or break your songs.
In this mini-course, we will have a look over the techniques that created some of the most unforgettable melodies we all know.
Everything will be very practical – for each tool, I will also show you exactly how you can go to your guitar/keyboard right now and put it into use in the next song that you are writing.
The tools are:
Tool #1 – Catchy Melodies Are Often Simple & Singable
Tool #2 – Using Tension & Release / Call & Response
Tool #3 – The Chords Are Already Doing Half of the Work for You
Tool #4 – It’s All About the Rhythm
Tool #5 – Repetition Is Your Best Friend
Tool #6 – Keeping a Pleasant Balance Between Steps & Skips
Your whole music listening experience would also become a lot more enjoyable, since you are going to have a deeper understanding of why you like the melodies that you like.
(Yes, I know it is a big promise, but wait until you’ll feel it yourself – it’s real)
