Alter Ego/Characterization
Hi Everyone, There are so many songs that incorporate an Alter Ego and or, Fictional Characters. Examples are "Major Tom" Bowie... "Rhiannon" Fleetwood Mac... "Eleanor Rigby"...The Beatles. One could argue whether the Stones "Sympathy for the Devil" fits? Either way, it's a brilliant lyric where Jagger takes on the persona of Lucifer. You get my point. There are many current examples as well. We can make a point/tell a story by using a fictional character to write about. Let's talk about how you might want to incorporate this concept into your writing or, give us examples in your writing where this technique was applied.

    What we're about

    A Songwriting Group on the North Shore of Massachusetts for beginner to experienced songwriters with a focus on sharing resources and methods of songwriting. All genres. No pressure, no egos, just learning and fun. Write at your own pace and learn from others. We meet monthly in Salem Mass.

    Let's offer each other constructive criticism. Collaborations could happen naturally? Or write on your own.

    Whether you are writing for yourself or crafting a song to pitch to a publisher or A&R professional, this group will strive to foster and provide an encouraging atmosphere.

    Maybe you just want to upload or send an mp3 to Soundcloud or You Tube. Maybe you haven't written a song but want to try. Or, maybe you are very experienced and have written many songs. We could use your input. If you are a performer, you can bring better songs to your performances. This is at your own pace!

    Let's see what we can share with each other and lets help each other grow as writers.

    Of note, as our group is solely based on attending meetups in the North Shore area, and our group is limited to 50, I ask that you not join if you are not local to our area. If you do join and are inactive for 3 months, I will need to remove you as a member so that other local songwriters can join. That being said, it's a fantastic group!!


    Thanks and all the best!
