YOU can write songs - as many songs as you want.
You just don’t know how to do it. Yet…
As musicians, we are taught the idea that songwriting “should just come naturally”.
“Since you can play your instrument…you should automatically be able to write lots of songs.”
This is not true.
Songwriting is a totally separate skill in itself…
And it can be learned.
If you struggle to write songs - let alone finish them…
You are NOT destined to be a “bad songwriter”...
You simply haven’t been shown the proper process to writing a song.
It all comes down to mastering the essential songwriting techniques that artists use every day to write songs...
Well, what if you could “download” the songwriting techniques of professional metal and rock musicians into your mind…so that you could write songs just like them?
I’m talking about artists like:
-- And many others...
You could use these techniques TODAY to...
-Write lots of songs (quickly and easily)
-Avoid "writer's block"
-Attract a fanbase of die-hard listeners
-Get thousands of streams and video views
-Build your career (even if you're "unknown")
And so much more…
On this page, I’m going to reveal how you can use "professional songwriting techniques" to write complete songs - even if you’ve always struggled with songwriting.
You’ll become someone who writes songs - and a lot of them - on a consistent basis.
But before I get to that, let me introduce myself…
Hello fellow songwriter! I'm Trey Xavier. You probably know me from my 230,000-subscriber strong YouTube channel Gear Gods.
I've written hundreds of songs and analyzed thousands… Studied music at Berklee College of Music and Sonoma State University (I have a degree in music composition)... And learned everything there is to know about songs and songwriting.
In my career, I've written songs with artists from bands such as Trivium, Amaranthe, Between the Buried and Me, Soilwork, The Agonist, Spiritbox, and more. And I critique dozens of songs every week in my livestreams.
I've learned what works in songs (and what doesn't), so you don't have to reinvent the wheel every time. I'm here to share my knowledge of songwriting with you...to make it easier, faster, more fun for you to create memorable, rich songs that you’ll be proud of…and your audience will fall in love with.
Aren't you tired of having tons of UNFINISHED song ideas?
There’s more to writing a song than “coming up with parts.” You need to use these parts in the proper way to construct a complete song...
If you want to do that consistently, you need to hone your craft of songwriting. This includes things like arranging, structure, transitions, harmony, melody, chord progressions - and how to know when to use each of these.
This is how you can take the ideas in your head and use them to create real songs!
If you don’t know how to do that, Complete Rock And Metal Songwriting will help you…
Want a career in music? Writing Songs is key...
Songs are your gateway to success in the music business.
Every door will open to you when you have world-class songs. Producers will want to work with you. Labels will want to sign you. Booking agents will want to book you on tours.
...And listeners will turn into life-long die-hard fans.
Think about what music YOU listen to on a daily basis…
It’s NOT just flashy production tricks, or how “Br00tal” the vocals are that makes you listen…
It’s about the experience the song gives you.
The combination of great riffs, catchy lyrics, exciting strong structure, and the overall feeling…
It makes you want to dance, pump your fist in the air and sing along, mosh, and enjoy yourself with reckless abandon.
That’s what gets you ADDICTED to songs that you end up NEEDING to hear every day...
And I can show you how to write songs that have that same effect on your listeners!
Flashy guitar solos or a great singer don't mean anything if the song sucks!
With my channel Gear Gods, I’ve interviewed and consulted with musicians and bands like Dream Theater, Black Label Society, Amaranthe, Jason Richardson, Trivium, Periphery, Archspire, Blind Guardian, and many more for the last 10+ years. And here's the thing...
I’ve learned 1 undeniable truth about successful bands:
If you're in a band, you will NEVER advance to the next level without next-level songs.
You'll be stuck in the local bar circuit, playing for the bartender…and maybe a few friends that you had to bribe with drink tickets
If you’re wondering why you can't pull a larger crowd, ask yourself the hard question: Are my songs just not that good?
If you can write a great song that people want to listen to over and over again, everything about the music business will suddenly get a lot easier.
But maybe you're thinking: "That sounds great Trey, but I'm struggling to finish songs!"
I can fix that...
Songwriting Doesn't Have To Be Hard! Here's why...
I’ve been writing songs for 25+ years. I help people write better songs on a daily basis. I interview world-famous rock and metal artists about their own songwriting processes.
And I can tell you this: Songwriting CAN BE easy! ...If you know what to do!
But, it wasn’t always so easy for me.
I used to struggle to take a simple idea in my head and translate it into real music. I would have intense “writers block” that would last days, weeks, or months. And I absolutely sucked at taking a bunch of random ideas and actually finishing a full song!
Thankfully, I figured out a way to consistently write songs that people love.
And I’ve made it my mission to show rock and metal musicians like YOU how to do it too.
Lucky for us, there are strategies and techniques that make it easier for you to get the music from your brain into the world.
I'm going to show them all to you in this course.
These are methods that the most prolific and successful songwriters and composers have been using for literally hundreds of years.
And when YOU learn to use the same methods for yourself, your relationship to songwriting will change dramatically (for the better!).
You're going to watch me write an entire song in this course, from start to finish, including all the parts (guitar, drums, bass, vocals, keyboards). I'm going to teach you everything I'm doing along the way, in detail.
If you follow along: YOU will be able to write full songs by the time you're done with the course.
You don't have to be a virtuoso on any instrument to write a great song - nor do you need a fancy degree, tons of music theory, or a famous producer. You DO need to know the ins and outs of what makes a song great. And I'll reveal them to you inside this course!
Writing Songs Can (and should) Be FUN - even if you've always struggled!
Writing songs is my favorite part of being a musician.
You get to design a full experience for the listener, deliver a message, make them move, and make them happy.
But if songwriting isn't fun for you, it's just because you don't have a method for reliably and consistently writing songs that you're proud of!
When you do, it's incredibly rewarding. Plus, getting better at writing songs will improve every single aspect of the music experience for you and the members of your band and the audience.
I'm Gonna Show You How To Actually FINISH the songs you start - and get fans Addicted To Your Music...
Introducing my new songwriting course: COMPLETE ROCK AND METAL SONGWRITING
In this course, I'm gonna get you out of the rut of having a hundred riffs or ideas that never go anywhere. I'm gonna keep you from writing endless riff salad that has no structure and never delivers a climax. I’ll show you how to compose songs that have an impact and are highly memorable, so that you stand out from other bands in your scene.
We're gonna go through the entire songwriting process together, from a seed of inspiration…to a full-blown final track with all the trimmings.
Here's what's possible for YOU in this course:
- Write a song starting from any small bit of an idea, like a riff, melody, or chord progression
- Generate inspiration from nothing and what to do with an idea once you’ve got it
- End “Writer’s Block” permanently (Hint: It’s a complete myth that’s shockingly easy to fix!)
- Use “tension and release” to structure your song for maximum impact
- Develop an idea throughout a song for maximum cohesion (You can use this to write “hit songs” FAST!)
- Add layers of vocals and harmonies
- Transition from one part of the song to the next - without losing your listener’s fragile attention
- Write guitar riffs and create variations for each part of the song
- Write melodies from chords and chords from melodies (even if you have ZERO music theory knowledge)
- Create drum parts that move the song and don’t get in the way
- Write catchy, memorable, and emotional lyrics that grab the listener
- Become a prolific songwriter through songwriting philosophy and mindset
...And TONS more!
