But first, some tips:
.
➜ When collaborating with others, decide songwriting credits right away (splitting potential revenues, etc.) to avoid future disputes (read https://goo.gl/jNbfIA).
.
➜ A few quick ways to jump-start your songwriting: Melody-based (humming a catchy hook or strumming a nice chord progression? Try expanding it!); Title-based (create a cool title and see where that takes you); Experience-based (think auto-biographical).
.
➜ Before recording, practice your songs at tempo. Otherwise, you risk a “stammering” quality.
.
➜ For other lyric ideas listen to conversations, monitor activities around you, take notes.
.
➜ Always preserve your #copyrights by professionally registering your songs. With SongRegistration.com, it’s cheap, quick, and super-easy.

Now, some stuff about another music icon, #Eric_Patrick_Clapton —
.
➜ The only person to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall and Fame 3 times — with The Yardbirds, then Cream, and finally as a solo artist.
.
➜ If the key to eternal youth is constant reinvention, #Clapton may be king — Compare: Rock Layla to Unplugged Layla, #Cream to #Bluesbreakers, master guitarist to ballad composer. (Of course it never hurts to also be blessed with that Magical Music Trifecta every producer is searching for: Smooth Voice, Songwriting Savvy, Guitar Chops.)
.
➜ A man of many faces: His first band (1963), The Roosters; then Casey Jones and the Engineers; The #Yardbirds; John Mayall’s #Bluesbreakers; #Cream; Delaney & Bonnie & Friends; #Blind_Faith; Derek & The Dominos; Legends.
.
➜ Though he won’t, if he quit now he could easily live large off just a fraction of what his chart-hit royalties earn (#I_Shot_The_Sheriff, #Tears_In_Heaven, #Lay_Down_Sally, #Change_The_World, #Layla, #Wonderful_Tonight, #After_Midnight… we’ll randomly stop there…).
.
And thanks, Eric, for a lifetime of epic music!
