ABABCB song form - building blocks of song structure -

The basic song structure pattern that all of today's music evolved from is "ABABCB", or "Verse - Chorus - Verse - Chorus - Bridge - Chorus".

Modern songs are "grandkids" of this layout, having different lengths, tempos and time signatures that make each song a unique artistic expression.

So if you know the common pattern for the type of song you want to write, you'll be able to use it to structure a great song from your lyric just like the professionals.

Now as a beginner I'll show you how to understanding these patterns and guide you through the song structure process until you get more experience.

There's nothing worse than being excited about a song idea only to become depressed because you don't know how to begin or because your song sounds like crap when you're done.

This is why many of today's famous songwriters still get help to write new songs.

I'll show you how to use existing songs as blueprints for your next song's layout. All you need to do is continue reading.


Which layout makes more sense to you?

Chorus (or Refrain)
Chorus (or Refrain)
Chorus (or Refrain)
