So what is song structure?

Song structure is a song's blueprint; repeatable sections arranged in the best pattern to express the songwriter's creativity in their song.

It's also called song form. Song Structure is the difference between a great song and one that no one remembers.

 

What are the different parts of a song?

linked sections of song structure - learneverythingabout.comThere are eight sections song sections are linked together.linked together song sections are linked together. to create a song structure pattern: Intro, Verse, Refrain, Chorus, Hook, Bridge, Break and Outro.

Each section has its own unique structure, and when those sections are arranged together they form an overall pattern for your music.

Each section (except for Intro & Outro) can be arranged differently depending on your genre of music and style of storytelling.

 

The Granddaddy Of Them All.

ABABCB song form - building blocks of song structure - learneverythingabout.com

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.

But because we’re so used to hearing certain types of songs in specific ways, most of today's song structures can be grouped together by music genre and target emotion.

 

OK, so how do you structure a good song?

A song is considered a good song when it sounds like ones we already love, while still sounding unique enough to be different.

All music is inspired. Today’s songs were inspired by songs written yesterday.

So when Jay-Z, Ne-Yo, Adele, Katy Perry and other great songwriters write songs either they use existing songs as blueprints or work with writers whose songs they like.

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, and it won’t take 3 months of music theory and $1,200 like at college. All you have to do is continue reading.

Which layout makes more sense to you?

Seeing the pattern "ABABCB", or seeing this:

Verse
Chorus (or Refrain)
Verse
Chorus (or Refrain)
Bridge
Chorus (or Refrain)

Both describe the same exact song pattern, but of course the second version has much more meaning. Next, which layout has more meaning to you? The layout below:

Verse
Chorus (or Refrain)
Verse
Chorus (or Refrain)
Bridge
Chorus (or Refrain)

Or something like this?

Hands down, seeing song structure flow dynamically while listening to its track is far better than reading a simple layout.

This is how you’ll master song structure quickly.

We’re going to take advantage of the science behind combining audio and visual learning.

I created the Song Structure Vault to help beginner songwriters like you visualize patterns (like the example above) to structure your songs like the pros, whether for Pop, Hip-hop, R&B, Rock, Country and more.

But it doesn’t matter what you use to visualize song structure as long as you find a way to see the pattern while listening to its track.
