How do people write songs with chills? A friend of mine will just sit down and write a song that is spine chilling. It's odd cause his range is just about two octaves and he's a nasally tenor, but what he's doing is working.
It makes me a bit jealous, but he'll just sit down and pump out a song out of nowhere.
How do? How does someone get great song writing skills?
I got music theory, and improvising and throwing chord progressions together works pretty well. But for the most part it seems effortless. He even wrote a two chord song just using an augmented C and an augmented A chord and it is almost universally enjoyed when we play live.
What I'm more curious is about capturing a spark. I am always practicing and getting better, I just want to know how people put that spark/sound that makes people have chills into music.
I truly believe that some people were just born better at creativity than others, it's usually at a trade off though, so embrace what you do have and accept the fact that you'll always be a shit artist
