Heartfelt blues (and no trucks) with Steve Strongman

Juno-award winning recording artist Steve Strongman joined us to talk about his take on the blues.  Steve is a multiple Maple Blues Award winner, 2019 International Blues Challenge Best Guitarist (solo/duo). He’s opened for BB King, Buddy Guy, Joe Cocker, Johnny Winter, and toured all over the world.

We talked about:

  • What’s the blues anyway?
  • What counts as a co-write when collaborating?
  • How to write an understated chorus
  • How to write with a “less is more” approach
  • Using different guitar tunings to hack your songwriting
  • Writing based on a title or phrase
  • Writing lyrics that are open to interpretation

This is Song Talk Radio’s Episode 300! Yea for us!
