Arranging is one of those mystery topics within the music world, where we hear about it all the time, but only a few people really know what it is or why is it so important. Especially today it is a super relevant skill, because we have a surplus of singer/songwriters and producers out there, but arranging is usually a skill that both lack. For this reason, I want to shed some light about what arranging is and why is it so important.
In the previous weeks of music production blog posts we looked into finding the right equipment, writing the melody and coming up with the song forms. Moreover, last week we looked into how to arrange the rest of the song in terms of adding more instruments such as bass and drums.
In the last post, I went over how to write a A section and B section of a song using Ableton Live. In this post, I would like to expand our song a bit and get into adding some more instruments.
