01 Songwriting Tips

This Podcast by Backwoods Recording Studio on Songwriting tips & techniques is very informative and I think will benefit me as a songwriter. Really enjoyed listening to Tony Ray and John Swain. Have subscribed and am looking forward to many more. Thanks Tony Ray for sharing all your vast knowledge and years of experience on this PodCast. BTW... Tony Ray has a great talking voice to listen to. Should have been in radio! Love John's songs ...great insight from both of you.

Great tool for songwriters

I have been a singer/bass player for years and never thought of dabbling as a songwriter until I tried it and co-wrote with a friend and wondered how to go about it in Nashville. These tools and resources were not available in Music City back in the 90's and early 2000's which would have been so beneficial on pursuing a songwriting career in Nashville. I just stumbled onto this from a studio website and was amazed that this was offered and now rather than only utilizing Google to achieve information now these podcasts are available which is essential to learning these steps easier than going through the school of hard knocks. I love these podcasts and keep them coming on to give each songwriter guidance in situations that may occur. Thanks for this podcast and looking forward to hearing and following more in the future.

Solo Pianist / Composer

Very professional! Not only sounded great, but was very educational and entertaining with special guest and songwriter John Swain. John covered 10 of his top 20 points of songwriting that he uses in part one. And for the years and experience John has had in the industry it was both fun and inspiring listening to him talk about each point; especially with myself being a composer. Definately check it out!
