Hello !

Today brings another songwriting challenge with big constraints.

It includes three steps:

1- pick a song you like, ?

2- map out the arrangement and instrumentation of that song, ?

3- fill in the blanks with your own music. ?

Having an arrangement to work around is really helpful to get started but, of course, you're 100% free to break out of that box once you've found your creative flow ?

Have fun with this and feel free to share your work with us in the comments!
