Use Drum Loops To Write Awesome Songs

We’ve all been there. A blank page, a strong desire to write an awesome song, but – nothing. No ideas, zero inspiration. Trying to force the beginnings of something but nothing works. In a group dynamic like rehearsals, one member of the group is usually charged and ready to lead the rest out of a creative void. But, alone, staring at your computer, mic or instrument, it can be much harder to bring something to life.

This is when you most need an unexpected boost or nudge in the new direction. You may already have an idea or two bouncing around your mind but it’s missing something to bring it together. Enter the all-important drum groove. Unless you’re an experienced drummer or very well versed in using drum loops, it might not be your first thought to look to drum beats for inspiration. But, whether it’s a laid back vibe or a rock and roll pounding – the energy of a drum beat can really get your creativity flowing and bring a song idea to life.

Here are some great ways to use drum loops to write awesome songs.

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Here’s a tip to help you begin to learn to write for films. Find a movie that you really enjoy, that you really get into. Rent the movie and put it into your VCR. Turn the sound off and run the film with only the pictures to inspire you. Try putting a towel over the face of the TV and listen to only the soundtrack. Be sure to have a notebook and pen when you do this. If nothing comes to you, don’t give up. Get a different movie and try again.
