How to start writing music?
To start writing, you must first be aware of what you want to do, that idea is that you will guide yourself as you progress further.
Within your idea you have to know the genre you want to use for your music, with this you can have a clearer idea of the lyrics, and relate it to their type of musical style.
It is always a good idea to write stories that have happened to you in your past, even if it seems that not, your followers can feel admiration, also discover more about you and that catches their attention.
Look for inspiration, you can be inspired through a place, the music you like or simply from within, the important thing about writing music is having your own style that makes a difference with the competition, write what you feel, what you can talk about Events pasts, lessons, personal achievements, etc.
People will like to hear your stories, sad or overcoming moments, all these feelings can develop within the song.
Start writing from the first word that comes to mind, many composers usually start with a verse, a chorus, also with a hook or even with a melody that you carry in your head. Either way you can start, there is not really a perfect order, your ideas can vary a lot.
Remember to always be attentive to the ideas that go through your head and write them down, it may be that one of those silly ideas is the beginning of a new destination.
For this reason, we recommend that you always carry a notebook with a pencil, a tape recorder or you can also copy it to your notes blog from your cell phone.
Once you have the main ideas of what you want to do, you can begin to associate it with instruments and melodies. As you can also listen to music by other artists and feel comfortable with one of their rhythms (keep in mind that it is music with a similar tempo to the one you want to sing).
Make several drafts of your letters so that you can create a wide variety of similar letters and then you can play around with them and try until you feel comfortable with the results. Little by little you will discover how to advance in your song.
Once you get a good rhythm, with an ideal drums and melodies that help you put your lyrics together and everything will become easier.
Ok, but how do I go about structuring an entire song? Here we will show you a series of steps that will help you write music professionally.
How to structure a song?
It is generally said that a song should include:
A verse is the part of a song that conveys the sense of the story and, in the course of its part, details things from the same story. It is usually the part that has the longest time in a song, this element is essential for a song.
There are songs that can be structured without the other elements (chorus, bridges, intro, etc …), but even in the hip hop genre the songs can be interpreted only with verses in freestyle mode.
The chorus is an important element for songs, although it is not necessarily important since a song can be performed without a chorus.
But it’s about that popular part of a song that always gets repetitive and catchy to remember.
It is composed of written lyrics related to the name or style of the song, and that makes it the main figure of a fully structured song.
It refers to the part of a song that is usually different in the song, perhaps it changes its theme, the rhythm, it is used to create the anxiety of the listener to hear the chorus again, it is usually in the place of the third verse to produce a bit of dynamics in the song and so on until the final chorus of the song.
The bridge is normally used to avoid so much repetition of the song and produce something different in the listener before ending the song.
It is not essential, since songs can be made without his presence.
Some only some composers usually start their composition of lyrics from this element. It is based on the beginning of the song, its first entry, its introduction; To elaborate an intro this does not necessarily have to be the first step.
it can be until the last step of the elaboration of your song, in the end each artist composes in their own way and in the style of it.
It is the final closing part of a song, it is not so long, it is always something very short so it does not take so much effort to do it.
Also, having the rest of the song ready, I assure you that it will be very easy to do the outro. Just focus on having a good closing.
Those are the basic elements of music, but now there are many varieties of the order of songs, you can interpret them however you want.
The most important parts at the beginning of a letter are the verse and the chorus.
From these two sections of the structure of a song, it will be easier for you to know the rest of the sections and connect ideas to end the song.
How to select the ideal title for a song?
The title of a song is a part that should be paid close attention as it will identify the theme of the song and is one of the first impressions of listeners.
That is why we must use the word that most identifies you with the theme related to the song.
The vast majority of great artists usually put the title, the word that is repeated the most times during the song or they also put a word that does not appear in the musical lyrics but that is somehow related to the theme of the song.
Final part of writing a song
At the end of it all, when the lyrics of your music are completely finished, be sure to seek other opinions on how the lyrics turned out, show your friends who ask for their opinion on it.
You can also apply the one to completely forget the lyrics of the song after 1 or more weeks to go back to review with a new mind and without knowing what you are seeing, so that you can notice another image above the lyrics.
Fix the last details of the lyrics, analyze the lyrics, confirm that it is understandable and that it may make sense to other people who listen to it.
If you already make this series of corrections and you feel ready to do the recording with the producer, that means that you have made a musical letter in a good way. It can probably be a big hit with your acquaintances and even globally in your region.
In case most people don’t like your lyrics, it doesn’t mean anything, maybe that topic isn’t for them, but don’t stop and go on with your culmination and close with that.
