In my series of video blogs for iDoCoach I'm talkin' co-writing. Easily one of the top 3 topics for songwriters I coach. I've written a blog on co-writing etiquette in the past but this time I decided to focus on the session itself and the spirit of just being open to the other writer to get the best outcome.

The "selfie" I can blame on too  much time in front of the computer...
