Feedback in June. Due to the quick pace of Feedback (FDBK) course registration, we just added several new Feedback course sections in June. Many of the sections do fill up within an hour of the 10am ET start time (some even quicker than that). However, if a Feedback course is full, please keep checking back in case someone cancels during the week and a seat opens up. If you registered for a course, but you are not going to be able to attend and do not have a song and note loaded in your backpack for that course, PLEASE be respectful of your mentors and fellow songwriters by deleting the course from your Active courses page so someone else can fill the seat. Thank you. Also, if you have questions or need assistance with registering for courses, planning your next songwriting goal, or any other SongU related issue, please let us know by using the support form.
Submit Your Songs for the June SongU Featured Playlist! - This month submit your best song that has A NAME IN THE TITLE ala Rosalinda's Eyes; Eleanor Rigby; Rhianon; My Sharona; Alfie; Jessie's Girl; Angie; (this list can go on and on and on!). Here's a slightly more contemporary list: Dixie Chick's Goodbye Earl; Taylor Swift's Dear John; and even more recent, Lady Gaga's Judas, Lizzo's Jerome, St. Vincent's Happy Birthday, Johnny; Jay-Z's letter to his dad in his song Adnis, and let us not forget ALEXANDER HAMILTON! Any style or genre. Lyrics-only accepted. HOW TO SUBMIT: Find the Playlist listing in Pitching Fast Track area. Submission deadline is June 17th or when the first 40 songs have been submitted - whichever comes first.
