Simplicity In Songwriting

In this short video master songwriter Craig Wiseman points out that most of the great songs we listen to and love are incredibly simple 2 chord or 4 chord “crap”.

Watch to the end because he demonstrates how simple songs really are playing just two notes (one note at a time) on the piano and gets the whole room singing along.

Bottom line: songs just aren’t that complicated. If you can get people to sing along…you win.
