Charles Kim, long-time teacher from the Old Town School, expands the techniques you know with more options to create the song you want. Look at the logic of why and when chords want to move within a key; how chords affect the perception of melody and lyrics; study how to extend chords by adding sixth, seventh and more. Investigate how and why verses, choruses, pre-choruses, refrains, intros, outros and codas are used and how that can help your own songwriting vision.
