I have been writing lyrics for along time now. I understand song structure however im not sure if im writing the correct way or if the producer know how to make tracks for r and b song format. When producers send me beats its hard for me to listen and break down where the verse start where the chorus starts ect..So my question is there a formula you suppose to follow so lyrics are not to long or short or do I just write to the beat?
hi Adriana!! Here's my blog on song structure. http://tamilatrell.com/us/basic-songwrit...
Also, you can always ask the producer to adjust the song structure or advise you on his ideas for where each part should go.
There are some standard structures, especially for songs on radio, but you know as creators sometimes there is no formula! thats the benefit of being creative is that you can do whatever you want.
But i hope the blog helps you. Please book me for a one on one phone consultation/webinar if you have any other questions. Happy to help!
I have written a lot of songs but no music behind them. I don't want to record the songs or go into a studio. What are ways I can actually get those songs out without them having music to go with the lyricsTami LaTrell responded on 01/16/2016 Next question
Do you think that a songwriter should copyright a song before shopping around the demo? Also, if you file a song with you pro would that be the same as obtaining copyrights to said song?Tami LaTrell responded on 03/21/2016
