Welcome to the first post of the new Frettie Journal, a blog aimed at helping you surmount the difficult hurdles that every songwriter is posed with in developing their career.
From writing and practicing to playing live, getting your songs out, your music noticed and your name known, the Frettie Journal is designed to give you ideas and practical advice to help you take the next step forward, or to just avoid hitting a wall.
Beyond advice, we aim to pack the Frettie Journal full of interviews, important updates around what we're working on here at Frettie as well as what's happening in the industry.
We want to provide a blog that is genuinely useful and applicable to any songwriter on Frettie, novices and seasoned veterans alike. So that means we want to get you guys talking too. If you like a post, feel free to say so. If an article got you thinking then discuss it and if you have an idea for a topic or want to contribute, let us know!
As long as we keep things constructive then discussions can only serve to help this blog as a communication tool, and more importantly as a means to help you guys grow as songwriters!
To get things rolling follow us onto our first feature “Word Games”, a post designed to help improve your lyric-writing with new ideas, techniques and exercises!
