4 steps towards writing your first song on the guitar

1. Start With a Phrase

Perhaps it’s something you wrote in your diary. That expression will frame the title, the primary line, or the melody of your tune.

Get out pen and paper and record this expression. Perhaps when you record it you’ll think of another expression, and one more and again. Feel free to record these lines when they come to you. Keep the pen and paper convenient on the grounds that you will utilize them to keep adding words to the melody and to make notes about the harmonies.

2. Keep this expression in your brain as you begin to play your guitar.

Play in whatever key is your #1 at this moment. You can even utilize the harmony movement of your main tune on the grounds that while tunes are liable to copyright laws, harmony movements are free for the taking. Simply ensure that when you utilize the harmony movement from another tune you don’t utilize similar tune or words as the tune it comes from. Your tune and your verses both must be unique.

Keep on playing, unwinding and slipping into that exceptional zone, allowing thoughts to come to you uninhibitedly. As you play, begin murmuring and keep on murmuring alongside your guitar until you’ve made a tune.

Presently, rather than murmuring, attempt to sing your uncommon expression alongside the tune you’ve made. This will take some reiteration, yet at last, the expression will fit the music. You should record your voice now in the event that you figure you may fail to remember the song.

Recall that now, the innovative conditions are ideal for you to construct the verses for your tune. You may have discovered that when you were singing the expression other rhyming expressions came to you naturally. Record those. If not, presently’s the time. You can either continue playing your guitar while concocting expressive thoughts or you can stay with the paper.

On the off chance that you need to have the standard section and melody design you’ll require diverse music for the tune and in any event two stanzas, however beside that, anything goes. You may even choose to simply rehash your expression again and again!

4. Clean it Up

This is where you go your talk into a completed item fit to be played and sung for another person. Go over your verses on paper and work on singing them, revising them as you come to guarantee that they stream easily and are not difficult to sing.

Type up the tune with its completed verses and add the harmonies where they should be. Ensure your name is added as a writer!

On the off chance that you like this enough to keep composing melodies, you’re set out toward numerous experiences in instrumentation, composing, style, music hypothesis, experimentation, masterminding, and ideally sound account and live execution. Bon journey!
