I had fun giving myself a songwriting assignment last week. It kind of forced me to write a new song that I may not have written. As I have said before in previous posts, my internal songwriter is very lazy. Weekly assignments are one way I can kick its ass.
This week my assignment is a bit less involved than last week. So here it is….My new assignment due by next Sunday :
Write a song MELODY FIRST in the C DORIAN MODE.
The C Dorian scale includes the notes: C, D, Eb, F, G, A, Bb, C – - So that is the scale I am going to base this week’s song on. I have no clue what the song is going to be about, but I have to come up with the melody first, which is not super easy for me. I will probably play a melody on the keyboard and record it and listen to it over and over. It should inspire something. Stay tuned for the song that results this week! If you write your own song, feel free to post it too! ~~ Chad
