Tips for Writing A Song

So you are a music fan and love listening to a wide range of music? I assume, you are. Welcome to the world of music fans where you are standing together with millions of people all across the globe. The truth is, almost everyone loves music and though the language and type of music may differ yet it will be nigh impossible to come across a person who is not fascinated by the power of music.

Many of you must be interested in writing your own songs. The idea itself is creative and fascinating enough. But then, when it comes to penning down lyrics, you start struggling for right set of words. There is nothing to worry if you are facing this particular problem. The important thing is you are passionate about writing songs. Secondly, if you have the ability to express yourself in words and are willing to be patient, the job is half done.

The basic thing to know is music theory and for that either you can consult someone who knows about writing music or there is always the option of internet surfing. Plenty of sites will describe in detail about nuances of music theories. Technicalities of a song are another important factor that is very important to know. It will also include different structure of a song.

You must be a good listener of music where you should be able to focus on individual parts like lyrics, tune, beats etc. Pick one of your favorite subjects which could be love, sadness, life, comedy etc and focus on that. Carrying a pen and paper is very important because anytime you can come across a wonderful note or idea or line. Most of the times, just a certain part of the song comes in the mind. Focus on that and learn to integrate it into the structure of the entire song at appropriate places. Try to hum your written lyrics in different rhymes. Go over your entire piece over and over again. This will give you a better idea of the total feel of the song. The last step will be getting the feedback from other persons.
