Today in #SocialRiffing, Kat Ayala demonstrates her process of writing a song with a friend online. "I've been focusing on creativity at home lately, and I wanted to pump out a song without spending too much time on it. For me, the best and most fun way to do that is to collaborate with somebody. It means I can bounce ideas around but also set limits within which to create. Astrid chose a tempo, and I sent her chords for a verse and chorus. She then created a structure, added drums and synth, and sent it back to me. I put melodies all over the top and that was that. Fun."
If this inspires you to pick up your guitar and get involved, upload your videos to Instagram tagging #SocialRiffing. We'd love to hear what you're playing!
As musicians everywhere hit pause on all tours, gigs and rehearsals, the desire to create and learn doesn’t go away. We’ve teamed up with a whole host of great guitarists from around the world to deliver some tips, techniques and demos (and not to mention some awesome playing!), which they’ve recorded from their homes.
