Are You Set To Make A Song
Are you set to make a song? I'm going to touch on 3 points on what is required to make a song from bottom to top.
First come up with the song title for your tune. A title will do a lot in establishing what that song shall be about musically and lyrically early on which will make your job simpler moving for work. Certain titles are greater than others, of course. As an example, you might take into account coming up with a title which suggests some sort of back story that can make coming up with the topic and subject matter of that song lyrically a good deal simpler. On the other hand you will second come up with a theme rich song title which exudes a particular feeling which that tune will possess.
Next, as soon as we get our song name we will come up with our initial hook. This is the most challenging part of writing a song because the most difficult part of a good deal of things is getting started. How we do this once we are going to make a song is to take our song name and try throwing different notes at each word and syllable in that song title.
Different combinations such as stretching notes over numerous syllables or going staccato and assigning one note per syllable or even multiple notes per each syllable gives you a lot of different ideas to work with. To further complicate things and give you more options, work with putting different chord progressions within the key you are working in all around that melody you have come up with. Different progressions will drastically alteration the effect and efficacy of that hook. Remember that a strong hook is equal parts the melody as well as the support around it which entails the progression and the instrumentation.
Once you've your initial hook it becomes far easier to branch out in either direction to make up the rest of the tune. There is no one perfect song structure, so don't bind yourself to a particular verse chorus verse chorus formula. Often times the best and most interesting songs are those which make a great deal of interesting changes and to deviate from the standard structure.
Finally, writing lyrics can be the most challenging part for some people. The good news is that starting out with the music constructs writing lyrics that much less complicated as we already get some idea as we come up with every part musically the kind of timing or rhyming structure we need to stick to. Then, as soon as you come up with your initial line for a particular section of your tune, you know the rhyming structure and will stick to that which narrows down the types of rhymes you're going to be searching to use. While it seems like it is limiting you and constricting you, in reality you will get a great deal more done because you be much more focused and writing.
As I have only scratched the surface so far, I recommend that you refer to my complete resource on songwriting, "How to Write a Song - The No BS Songwriter's Bible" as this covers each bit of songwriting from top to bottom as well as dozens of tips and tricks which you will use to successfully jump start the songwriting procedure and force musical hook ideas to come to you.
