Tom Petty’s Free Fallin’: Songwriting genius

FreeFallinIGSo sad to hear about Tom Petty’s passing.

The world was lucky to have been blessed with his music.

Free Fallin’, his beautiful feel-good 1989 hit slow-jam, consists of only three notes.

Pure songwriting genius.

Free Fallin’ offers a great lesson about creativity.

Parameters like that, in this case, using only three notes, forces you to work within those parameters.

Forces you to be more creative.

And Tom Petty embodied creativity.

So if creativity rules your life, use the time you’ve got.

If you live to create, make creativity your life practice.

Writers. Musicians. Artists.

Challenge your creativity.

And look to musicians like Tom Petty for inspiration.
