Lesson Description:

A few years ago I wrote and recorded guitar parts in a songwriting session with Macklemore. Intentions is the name of the song that I played on. 

In this week's lesson about the process of guitar songwriting in a professional studio setting I share about:

  • How I got the opportunity to play with Macklemore on “Intentions”
  • What the experience was like working with Macklemore
  • And then—to show you what kind of guitar songwriting knowledge was needed in a professional studio session like that—I teach the actual guitar parts for the song “Intentions” and how I came up with them.

With the clear sheet music, tabs, and chord diagrams in this video, you'll see that it's really pretty simple guitar songwriting theory stuff.

This is a great example of how much of what I teach in my weekly lessons can be used during real music making opportunities.
