ISSUE 15: Summer 2018

Songwriting is no easy thing. One has to juggle melody, harmony, rhythm, and lyrics simultaneously, put all those pieces together seamlessly, and then connect with an audience to evoke an emotional response. No easy thing for sure, but anyone can learn the craft. This special edition of Riff is designed to help get you started, especially if you’re a guitarist. We open the issue up with a repertoire of instrumentals from many of our top artists and educators.

Think of these songs as studies in rhythm, groove and melody. Next, Jeff Scheetz serves up a chord vocabulary designed to spark your creativity! Our featured master class from songwriter and recording artist, Adam Levy overflows with guidance, inspiration and harmony applications that will take your songwriting skills to the next level. Fourteen TrueFire artists and educators each give you their top three tips for songwriting. Other TrueFire artists share their most memorable concert experience.
