    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Write a rough draft of the first verse of your song. This verse should draw attention to your song and make your audience want to listen. Don’t worry about it being perfect at this point; you will refine all the verses and the chorus later. Now, of course, you will need to write the second verse. In this part you will need to continue to tell the story and explain what the action is. Don’t be too detailed; this is a three-minute song, not an opera. Next comes the third verse. Tell more about your story here, and add relevant information to your story. You really want to enhance the story line from verses one and two, because the next verse will close the song.
