How To Make A Song Instrumental
Need to know how to make a song instrumental? Many artists throughout history have taken other people's songs and made them instrumental. This may be done for many reasons, such as they may not be able to sing the song, or they just want to do it for fun. Here, we're going to give some guidelines to making a song instrumental.
- Determine what song you want to make instrumental. Make sure that the song you want to make instrumental is a lyrical song. Just because a song has a chorus singing in the background with no main lyrics doesn't mean that it's not instrumental already.
- Choose the instrument. When making a song instrumental, you need to choose what instrument you want to play the song on. This could be a piano, a violin or a guitar, anything you want. Once you have chosen, move on.
- Figure out how you want to make the song instrumental. Do you want to play the lyrics on an instrument, or do you just want to forget about the lyrics completely? When songs are made instrumental, using a band as an example, a rhythm guitarist would play the original melody of the song and the lead guitarist would play the lyrics on the guitar.
- Arrange the song. You may need someone to help you with this. If you're going to follow the example given in step 2, then you'll need to write some sheet music. Make sure that you play the song on your instrument first. If you're an experienced guitarist, violin player or piano player, then you should be able to write some sheet music for the song. If you aren't experienced enough, then try to find somebody that could help you write the sheet music.
- Find someone to play the song with. If you re-wrote the song primarily for a single player, than you can skip this step. Once you have made the song instrumental, try to find somebody to play the song with, especially if you are in a band. Play the song a few times and look for flaws. If you find any, fix them on your music sheet. If there are none, enjoy the song!
