Valuable Worship songwriting lesson that I have learned in recent months

It isn’t rocket science, and I have heard it before, but I largely did not pay any attention. Collaborate!

It is that simple.

Fresh ears… different ears… they bring something new to the table that you would not have brought, sometimes completely changing a song around. And, often changing a song or remolding a song for the better.

I have been working with a brother-in-Christ who has not only been beneficial in improving the new worship music that I have written, but he has made me a better songwriter. We have lived in the same neighborhood for years and were introduced by chance when we needed a lead guitarist last minute at a church function that our worship band was playing.

Godincidence? For certain.

So, if you are looking to improve your songwriting, I encourage you to look around your neighborhood… look around your church. Your essential key to improved writing might be living down the block.

As I get closer to finishing my latest project, I will be posting up some samples of how an initial, skeletal draft of a new song turned into something much more wonderful than I could have ever imagined after other ears had a listen.
