Phrasing - Deepstash


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 to, repetition is key.

A good method to verify your phrasing is by counting the syllables in your verses and make sure the number is same for each corresponding line.

For eg:

Feeling good ( 3 syllables)

Just (1 syllable)

Like I should (3 syllables)

Yeah (1 syllable)

You can use throw away words to help: but, cuz, yeah
