About This Class

Welcome to 'How to write a song in three days', the XSNoise songwriting series with Christopher Richter. I will take you through the songwriting process and teach you one way that you can write a song. There are many more different processes and systems that you can use to write songs. This course only covers one way to write.

There isn't a right or a wrong way to create a song. But there is a way to make it easier for you to write.

This course takes you through the lyric writing process, choosing chords for your song and then creating a melody for the song. A final recorded version of the song is available at the end of the course. I have also provided a backing of the music incase you would like to try your own lyrics and melody over the music.

hi so i get that the song was written in avery short time frame but tbh it doesnt feel right as in i dont feel any emotions nor do i see the real " struggles " the singer is supposed to be going through , nice class though found it very helpful .
