Song Writing Prompt – Day #1

Congratulations on your decision to participate in the Seven Song Week, Songwriter Challenge!

As promised, every day I will be posting a prompt you are more than welcome to use to help inspire your creativity for the day.

Your prompt for Day #1 of the songwriting challenge (Friday May 5th):

Write a song using only ONE instrument!

A lot of the time, the most difficult part of writing a new tune is deciding what instrumentation to use (especially with electronic music production!). For one of your songs this week, try sticking with just piano, guitar or maybe marimba or the default Massive patch. Just make sure to use only ONE!

As a reminder to you, this challenge is a practice of ignoring the tiny details of your composition and just pushing forward to the finish. The songs you create don’t have to be fully developed, they should just be as close to finished as you can get them before the end of the day.


If you seek more inspiration or feedback during the week, please head on over to the Spacefood Forum to chum with me.

To all of you, I wish you GOD SPEED!
