How To Make Instrumental Songs
Need to know how to make instrumental songs? Instrumental songs are a lot easier to write than songs with lyrics because all you have to do is write a tune and you won't have to worry about the lyrics. However, it goes a lot more in depth than just writing a tune. So, follow these guidelines and you'll be able to write a great instrumental song!
- Discover a tune. Instrumental songs are all about the tune and the arrangement. This step may be easy or hard for you, because it requires that you have creativity and experience. If you're an experienced player, then you'll have no problem playing casually and developing a tune. If you're inexperienced then it may take some time to find a good tune. Many songs are first written as a tune that is found by simply playing the instrument casually. If you think a tune would be good for a song, write it down on sheet music to make sure that you don't forget about it. However, don't think of it as discovering an entire song. It just has to be a pretty basic tune that you can come up with.
- Write the rest of the tune. Once you have discovered a basic tune, write the rest of the tune. The tune should be a bit repetitive, unless it's supposed to be an orchestra related song. If it's a rock tune for a band, then it should be a little repetitive. Don't forget to come up with an intro and a chorus. The intro and the chorus may sound similar as well.
- Create the other parts of the instrumental song. If you're writing an orchestra song, you may need to write parts for other instruments. This is a must for a band, however. Since you've already written a part for the lead guitarist, you'll need to create parts for the drums, the bass and the rhythm guitarist. For the rhythm guitarist, make sure that you write parts for him that go along with the lead guitarist tune. The rhythm guitarist plays chords in the same key as the lead guitarist. The same goes for the bass part. The drum part should be made up by the drummer or as a grou,p because it is a very vital part of a song.
- Play the song. Make sure the song sounds the way it's supposed to. Play all the way through the song, whether in a band or not, to find any flaws in the song. For example, you may have written the wrong note on the sheet music or a part may not sound right to your ears. If so, fix the part that is flawed and go right back to playing the song. Play the song over and over again to make sure that there are no more flaws in the song. If there aren't any more flaws, then enjoy your new instrumental song!
