A Calgary Folk Fest & National Music Centre Bootcamp Session
Donovan Woods - Lyrics and Melody Only
Tue · July 25, 2017 - Thu · July 27, 2017
Daily schedule: 10am - 1pm
Woods’s class will help you examine the power of lyrics and what makes them work: Why are good lyrics so good? Why are bad lyrics so bad!? You’ll gain a better understanding of what makes a song lyric work and feel satisfying.
Class level/requirements: A desire to write your own songs and an ability to play a few guitar chords or notes on another instrument. The focus will be 80% technique.
Bring: An instrument if you have one and some songs you’ve written that you’re comfortable performing in front of the workshop and one example of a song with lyrics they really love.http://calgaryfolkfest.ticketfly.com/event/1488181/
Woods weaves magic out of the most minimal of ingredients, delivering poignant, whispery vocals over spare guitar work to create haunting melodies and memorable musical vignettes. Woods’s reputation as a stellar songwriter is solid — his compositions enjoy vibrant lives beyond his own guitar and microphone and have been recorded by a bevy of artists and also featured in a number of television shows and major motion pictures.
