I think tumblr songwriting needs to start back up again. I don’t know what happened there, anyone interested in keeping this alive at all?
No submissions this week?
Im extending your deadline, as I myself did not finish either.
One more week.
Write a song using these chords (not necessarily in this progression): E, A, D, and B. Use these elements in the lyrics: a camera, cigarettes, and an allusion to a book. If you don’t play an instrument, then just try to write the lyrics, but if you don’t usually write lyrics try anyway, we don’t care if its terrible.
i’ve only got one submission so far, wheres the rest of them?
Write a song using an multiple time signatures. Use any combination of 3/4, 4/4, 5/4, or 11/8. Make up one, for all i care just don’t use only 4/4 and 2/4. If your a lyricist and don’t play any instruments, write about “time” as an object or a person, not as a measurement. If you play and write, do both, or choose one. Post them by Saturday, and do it.
So, post them, tag them with #tumblrsongwriting and i will reblog. Submissions can also be videos or call ins to tumblr.
Ill be posting the first assignment Monday, and I need your submissions.
Each week there will be an assignment posted, whether it be the title of the song, a chord progression that needs to be included, etc. Anyone can submit there song for the contest. There will be no rules as to what you can use to make your song, or who you write the song with. If you are in a band as a group you want to submit, you can! If you are in a band and you all want to post separately, you can!
Im gonna need some help here though. I need you to submit your songs, your assignment ideas, anything. Whos in?
