Today I would like to get into one of the big mysteries of music: producing songs. Many people write songs on guitar, piano or even Voice Memos while walking down the street. But after you write your songs, how do you record it? Do you know how to make a demo? How does this all work especially if you do not know anything about producing?
One of the most frequently questions people ask when writing a song is ‘How can I write a catchy melody?”. Certainly with so many songs being released every day, this is a huge challenge in today’s music industry. The large demand for catchy melodies has created a new songwriting style in the recent years, dubbed “top-line writing”.
Do you have uncompleted songs in your notebook and countless voice memos on your phone? Welcome to the world of a songwriter, where we regularly jump from one idea to another and leave dozens behind without completing them. In this first post, I will focus on song forms and how they can help you complete your song ideas.
