How To Create The Perfect Structure For Your Songs

Some people have a knack for song structure. Taylor Swift, for example, began by writing poetry as a child. After teaching herself to play the guitar she began putting her poems to music, structuring them as songs. Of course, not everyone has Taylor?s innate musical skills. At the same time, you don?t need to attend college and earn a music degree or take years of lessons to learn the basics of how to create the perfect structure for your songs.

What does song structure actually mean? Structure refers to the way the sections of the song are arranged. Structure gives the song its form and optimizes the emotional or musical impact. Different genres of music have different structure. For example, a symphony has a different structure that a pop song. An R&B ballad has a different structure than a rap. So the type of genre you write in will affect the ultimate structure of your song.

Typically, songs employ repetition to make them catchy and to emphasize the song?s emotional point. Structure is also used to enhance the story telling element of a song, making the listener want to hear what?s coming next.

Before you can decide on the structure of your song, you need to know the components to use.

The Introduction: Usually an instrumental using chords from the verse or chorus but famous lyricists like George Gershwin regularly started his compositions with a sung intro.

Verse: Usually contains four to 8 chords. In songwriting terms, the story of the song is told through the verses.

Chorus: Also called the refrain, the chorus is also usually four to eight chords and has a primary musical phrase which is repeated. In Red Hot Chili Pepppers? ?Dani California,? the refrain is:

California rest in peace
Simultaneous release
California show your teeth
She?s my priestess, I?m your priest

The chorus as a distinctly different musical dynamic that the verses. In songwriting terms, this is the emotional center of the song. Typically, a phrase from the chorus is what people remember.

Bridge: a musical connection between a verse and chorus or between a chorus and verse. Can be used to smThis is especially useful when you have a key change from one to the other, or the transition from verse to chorus or vice versa isn?t particularly smooth.

Middle 8: A musical or lyrical interlude that can prevent a song from seeming monotonous or to add a different emotional element.

Outro: The ?bow out? of a song. Often it?s just a reiteration of the verse or chorus but can be totally unique. The elements of structure are just a guideline. How you use them is based on your talent and artistic vision.

The Sliding Jazzy Music Of The Trombone

The trombone is a wind instrument that belongs to the brass family. Like other brass instruments, the trombone is played by someone blowing into the instrument through closed lips in order to create the sound. What makes this particular instrument stand out is the slide that is used to change the length of the tube and create different pitches; however, there are some variations of the trombone that uses three valves that are quite similar to the ones on the trumpet. The version of the trombone that uses the slide is the more common one used by musicians who favor the trombone.

Trombones have been around for a very long time, though they were only referred to as trombones in the late 19th century. Before this time, trombones were known as sackbuts. While both instruments resemble each other in appearance, there are quite a few differences. Over time, the instrument changed as it was perfected into the trombone that most are familiar with today. What differs most between the trombone and the earlier model is the slide the trombone is now equipped with, as well as a bell that is more flared.

Today’s trombone is also a little larger than the sackbuts. Even after these changes, the instrument is not necessarily more difficult to play than its ancestor. In fact, the instrument will be a little easier to play and have more flexibility and range than the sackbut, though it is still an instrument that can take a little getting used to when first learning how to play it.

It is not uncommon for the trombone to be used in school bands. This particular instrument is not an overly expensive one to start with, but it is also easily found in used music stores at a reduced price. The music for the trombone is easy to find and relatively inexpensive. Another attraction to this instrument in public schools is in how easy it is to learn how to play. This is not to say it is extremely easy.

Learning how to control one’s breathing as well as how to move the slide to the right spots to create the right pitch can be tricky at first. It is an instrument that is easy to get a sound out of, but it is one that will need time and patience before it is mastered. Becoming familiar with where the slide must sit in order to create the right pitch is probably one of the most difficult parts when first trying to play this instrument; however, learning how to read the music right and quickly catching onto the idea of how it is supposed to be played makes it a welcome addition to school bands, because the basics are not hard to learn. As is true with most anything, students who take the time to practice their instruments will usually excel faster than their peers who don’t practice as much. Someone who is serious about learning how to play the trombone well will often have little trouble playing this instrument well.

Review Of The Superjoint Ritual Cd Use Once And Destroy

Superjoint Ritual released their most recent album entitled Use Once And Destroy.

It’s a rare day indeed that I get a CD from an artist that I can truthfully say does not have a bad track in the bunch. I’m more than happy to announce that?s exactly what I must say about this one. There simply is NOT a bad one in the bunch. No fillers here at all, with each song standing tall on it’s own.

Use Once And Destroy is a pleasantly varied, mix of 18 tracks that are very well written and brilliantly performed songs by these clearly superb musicians. With many of the songs displaying a lot of the kind emotion that makes for a really great listen. Seemingly drawing from what I can only imagine are their own personal experiences. At different points touching on the most real emotions of love, heartbreak, pain, failed relationships and unattainable romance. They?re all here.

I?m of the opinion that Use Once And Destroy is certainly some of this groups best work in a few years. A totally enjoyable CD and an outstanding release. What I call must have music. I give it two thumbs up because it?s a collection that even the casual Rock fan can appreciate and enjoy.

While the entire album is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 2 – It Takes No Guts, track 9 – All Of Our Lives Will Get Tired, and track 18 – Little H.

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [ in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 1 – Oblivious Maximus. This is a great track!
