What is or was the most practical or applicable tutorial for your songwriting and/or arranging process? And can you tell what you learned from this tutorial and how you use it in your songwriting or arranging?
I'll start with mine favourite tutorial for arranging: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xBwd...
It's actually very new, but since I've seen this tutorial I use both introduced "techniques": The base line to connect chords on chordchanges and the "vanishing" chords in arpeggios for intros.

@torsten thanks for this and I'm going to take their advice with the arpeggio intro and work harder on connecting notes between chords. What do they call that?....lead tone, passing tone, whatever but I want to use all of the techniques they show in the great video you shared. Thanks.

I guess it's where you are, began, etc. (I been self-tawt 😀 since like 6 y.o. within a non-musical or artistic family, -- outsider life long 😉 hahhh!)
So, -- the only tutorial I can remember having memorable effect was The University of Edinburgh, Coursera Course.
You ask to comment what and why -- good thing to request since so much of this seems a bit fluid, as to "liked" it.
For me, I found an extensive engagement on Modulation; -- and, had allot to do with the folks there since the Curriculum was not finalised and the Profs fluid in/out.
-- Many talk about "tight groups" and online -- since can be unusual (present company accepted FAWM 😉 ) ; however, that group was, we were, *tight. And, the Prof, unusual for Coursera, got proactively frequently involved directly one-to-one.
The thing is, I can't say if still that way since at that time, -- they were actively Developing the Course (up front with that) and I had been a TA with another course there, -- to get stuff *changed, and did, -- since was kinda useless in the original deployed form/function. Yet, the closed group that formed afterwards, if I had a question even "now", I know I could post it there and get some serious, book length, response.
-- Well, if one finds that useful 😀
