Songwriting Prompts: Write a song in a genre you don’t normally play

Whether you’re a seasoned singer/songwriter or an aspiring artist, we could all use a little inspiration sometimes. That’s why I developed songwriting prompts to help you crush writer’s block and boost your creativity every single week.

Songwriting Prompt of the Week ⤵️

Write a song in a genre you don’t normally play. It’s stretching as songwriters and as musicians to expand our musical horizons. Normally write upbeat and feel-good songs? Try slowing it down with a vulnerable ballad. Usually write simple and straight-forward lyrics? Give story-telling a shot. This doesn’t have to be your best work. The point of this exercise is to try something new because that’s how you’re going to grow in your songwriting skills. I can’t wait to hear what you all come up with!
