    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of an effective bridge is that it departs from the rest of the song both musically and lyrically to provide contrast. It is a great place to really ‘make a point’ in the lyric and to provide a completely different perspective that will once more conclude with the powerful hook and chorus. The lyrical cadence and even the rhyme pattern can and should change at the bridge. Musically, also, the bridge should move to a new place by using a different melody, different harmonies and perhaps even different rhythms.
