Now I know that I’m preaching to the choir as I type up this post, but it is important to remind:
That no matter how much you read of these blog posts, you will not become a better composer/songwriter/arranger/music theorist without actually doing them.
The only tip that I can give is to actually do the tips as you are reading them, or be creative and come up with your own way.
For example: in the past we have talked about chord substitution and the use of the vi – V progression to avoid the tonic. If you remember those topics and have been using them in your writing, then this should look like a no-brainer:
A chord progression of vi – IV – V – vi to substitute the tonic and create an avoidance to resolve back to the home key area.
Basically, the more you practice these tips, the more you will discover and the better your writing will become.
