Writing to Tracks at SongTown

> Website: SongTown
> Facebook: SongTown

SongtownTop lining to tracks was a different approach to writing and I thoroughly enjoyed it. With tracks provided to each person participating, songs were created and uploaded to a forum where comments and feedback were given.

I found it to be such a worthwhile exercise not just in the creating of my own songs, but listening to the many versions that evolved for each track. No two songs were the same. It was truely amazing that so many song ideas could develop from the use of a common track.

Previously, I had heard about top liners in a book called - "The Song Machine." It was an interesting read and I knew I'd like to try it some time so when this opportunity presented itself to me, I was pleased to take part. Top lining is now another approach to undertake for creative songwriting.

The four week course was offered from the creative community called, SongTown and was facilitated by Marty Dodson and Clay Mills both multi#1 songwriters in the US. During the course of four weeks, I created four new songs and received comments and feedback about them.

The four songs will be posted below at a further time and another two additional tracks await in the wings to be written to.
Never Let Go
Fallen Angel
Tangled Blue
A Little Bit Wiser
