How to find inspiration?

I have a practice of keeping a note of any interesting melody I hum and get hooked on to. I even record things such as, an innovative painting, a beautiful idiom, poetry or contronyms.

The note app on your phone is an easy and accessible way to keep track and note your ideas before it fades away from memory.

Inspiration can come from unexpected places, so keep searching for it. If you wait for it to just come hit you like a ton of bricks, there's a higher chance that it's not going to happen.

Take a break, but always come back and search for a new perspective to look form

Basics

Basics

To write a song, you'll have to get a hold of the typical framework. Like people, songs come in all shapes, colours and sizes but commercially it is quite certain that a good song would contain:

Once you've got some words to work with, start rhyming.

Some songs didn't have many rhymes but attracted the public, but until we're stinking famous to be able to do whatever we want... We need to follow atleast some rhyming schemes:

  • AABB
  • ABAB
  • ABCB
  • AAAA

Phrasing

Phrasing

Phrasing means timing

Make sure your words sound on time in the verses or any other places you change your words.

Always remember that your chorus is the main part of your song, so it almost never changes lyrics. This is because a chorus is the part of the song that people sing along ...

Cadence

Cadence

Cadence is the end of the song. It is an important part of song writing because closure is what gives us fulfillment.

I do recommend ending it round circle, with something you said in the verse or a melody you used in the verse. It gives the listener a feeling of nostalgia and satisfaction...

Conclusion

Conclusion

Songs are a great outlet of emotions. Our emotions can be expressed simply by words but when you add music to the equation, you bring a whole new dimension to emotion that is more easily understood.

Whatever I've said so far can be applied for commercial songwriting but it's always nice to ...

Melody

Melody

Before working on the lyrics, find a good melody for your verses, pre-choruses, chorus and bridge.

If you can't play an instrument or chords, there are a few backing tracks available on YouTube or other sources to help you craft a song around it.

Melody first. Lyrics later.
