Have you ever listened to a song and thought, “I could have done that beat? Or "I could have written better lyrics?"
Well, you are not alone. A lot of people think writing a song is easy but don't want to take the time to see if they have what it takes.
Well, it's time to stop making excuses and put your money where your mouth is. First, set aside a few hours to be alone and really give yourself time to think. Now, let's think about the reasons why you want to write or make beats.
Are you doing it because you think the music industry has the potential to be a very lucrative field to work for? Or do you need to satisfy a urge to release emotions about particular events that you have been through?
Perhaps you have a message for you. Whatever the reasoning, it's important to understand why you want to write so that you can determine what to write about. If you are making beats, the same rules apply because different sounds often reflect different emotions.
Now that we have our reasoning, it is time to resolve an issue. Even if you know you want to write a song or beat that reflects recent heartbreak, it's important to be as specific as possible to avoid going off on irrelevant tangents.
A good way to start is by brainstorming. Yes, I mean writing topics, creating diagrams, etc. Whatever it takes to get you closer to that particular topic. Once you've made your choice, it's time to let your creativity run wild. Let's continue with the theme of grief. Your significant other caught you off guard and left your heart in ruins.
This is a great theme for the song, now let's take it a step further. Think about a particular moment when you felt your heart break and zoom in. This is what your song is going to focus on. Of course, there are a lot of songs that have multiple storylines playing, but since we were at the beginning, let's stick to the basics.
Replay this moment in your head as many times as you can. Eventually the word or sounds will start to come. If I do a beat about grief, do you think that beat is going to be a rhythmic tune? If I am writing a sad song, what words would I use to get my listener to relate?
Expose your crude desires and eventually everything will fall into place. You will soon be on your way to making a hit song.
