Welcome to the 50 Songs in 90 Days Challenge

This is the marathon of songwriting known as the 50 Songs in 90 Days Challenge. Between July 4th and October 1st, participants attempt to write fifty songs. Songwriters will test their creative mettle by trying to create a finished song in less than 2 days every day for nearly 3 months.

During these 90 days participants will encourage each other, collaborate, give and gain feedback on their new creations and push themselves to practice and refine their skills in songwriting. Whether long time vets of songwriting or picking up the pen for the first time, participants will grow their skills in making music... and just might have some fun along the way.

Since we got behind on posting the weekly challenges, here are two to catch up!

Hyperbole: Use exaggeration in the lyrics. Examples: “Changed the Locks” (Lucinda Williams), “Hoochie Coochie Man” (Willie Dixon), “It’s Raining Men” (The Weather Girls). If you compose music only, exaggerate musical elements like dynamics, intervals, etc.

Tag it week3

Four-Note Groove: Create a melody using only four distinct pitches.
