Point of View with Steve Seskin
In this lecture, Steve talks about point of view and reminds you to think about the "most powerful way to tell the story at hand." Deciding whether to use 1st, 2nd or 3rd person for your song is a big part of this, but what you're really doing is deciding who is telling the story. Coming at it from this angle can have a really big impact on how a song develops, or if it even gets written at all! Point of view can even be the secret ingredient of a great song!
