Back when I was first getting serious about songwriting, I wanted to gobble up all the theory I could, because I wanted to be good at my craft.
But when I'd try to apply what I'd learned, or write with it, it just didn't work; something was missing.
By the time I was getting my degree in college, I was no closer to solving this problem. That's because I was going about it all wrong.
It turns out, I was making three crucial mistakes that was inhibiting me from using theory effectively in my process. Today, I want to share those mistakes with you. My goal is to help you avoid years of trial and error, of frustration, that I had to go through.
Comment below with your experience trying to implement theory in your process. I'm very curious to hear if you guys made the same mistakes I did!
