How to write a psychedelic rock song and lyrics?

in

I listen to Japanese psychedelic rock bands like BORIS and yura yura teikoku, and also stoner metal bands like mastodon and down.
I have taken d*rugs, (dont lecture me on the pros and cons) and i have heard that many bands write under the influence of substances.
However i cant get started so how else would one get inspiration or start to write a song?

Answer: 
•You can only really write anything good if you are inspired. The words you'll have to find yourself but I can give you some help on structure. This is the basic structure of most generic pop songs , learn it as a foundation and use as much or as little as you like , how you personalise the structure/arrangement really is the art of song writing . Verse 1 = 4 lines, verses are usually descriptive and set the scene, the first line should be one of your best as it's one of the things people will remember and if it's bad the listener will just switch off GRAB their attention. Bridge (pre chorus) = 2 lines, the bridge is to lead you into the chorus, move up an octave or use a rising chord progression, or up the tempo. Chorus = 4 lines, this is the hook the catch, the bit everyone remembers. This is where you get your point across. Verse 2 = Can be 4 lines but generally works better with 2 as it makes the song sound less monotonous . Bridge Chorus Middle Eight (bridge / coda) = 4 lines, this is where you bring resolution to the song, add a twist, and use irony. Chorus You don't have to use that structure but it's a good fall back if you get stuck. If you want to write, get a note book and take it everywhere, write down everything that comes to you that you think sounds good, you can sift through it later to create songs, two lines that might have started out with totally opposite ideas could sit well together and create a whole new meaning. Avoid being blatant or cheesy, try to paint a picture and create a feeling with you words.

How to word set lyrics into sheet music?

in

My music teacher calls it word setting but I haven't found any other articles saying word setting so I am not sure
I have my original lyrics I want to put into sheet music.
How do you decide find what lyrics go into each bar?
I try tapping the beat and I have tried a metronome but I always loose my place in the lyrics or mess up the tapping.
Any tips?

Answer: 
There are two ways of doing it. You can either write each syllable on the beat it falls on with the vocal melody notated separately, or its easier to write the words in that bar in line with the first beat. if the stanza goes for more than one bar just break the stanza up.

How to learn lyrics to a song fast?

in

I usually learn songs in a few days but is there any way to learn them faster?

Answer: 
Well you could: 1.) Find The Song. 2.) Listen to the first line, memorize, then move on to the second line. Over time you will be able to learn two lines more, or three lines more than before. 3.) Sing the song in kareoke. This helps to find the speed and beat of the song. 4.) Listen to the song a lot. 5.) Sing the song without music or lyrics. This helps you a lot! 6.) Sing in front of people. 7.) Sleep with the music on at night. Though you are unconsious your brain will transfer the information quickly. I suggest you do this every night until you learn the song. Hope this helps!!!!! $u^^@!y@

How to write a song without worrying about the melody?

in

I can't actually finish any songs or get anywhere because as I write the words, I am too worried about how to sing them. And also, I keep subconsciously borrowing from songs I like, which is just no good. It's hard to write a song without any sort of template, and so that's why I look to songs that already exist

Answer: 
It's easy when you right a song you have to make sure it makes perfect sense and it can be about anything a fly or a bee anything as long as it makes perfect sense. Writing lyrics to a song is the same as writing poetry. Like many poems most use rhymes some don't.. If you choose to use a ryme in your poem dont use to many just keep it simple expressing what the song is about and describing it and what mood you feel and how it happen.

How to write lyrics to a song that already has music?

in

My friend sent me a song he wrote. He already has all the music to it, like guitar, bass, and drums. I'm trying to write lyrics to it but I'm having some difficulty. I'm used to writing lyrics THEN music.
So how can I write lyrics to a song that already has music to it?
And can I also have some suggestions of topics for the song?
Thank you. :D
I'm thinking the topic should be something like hypothetically lost at sea. Not sure.

Answer: 
damn, sounds like you should form a band. -it's like anything else, you pair the vocals near the sound of the song. usually if the lead guitarist plays a high note, the singer follows relatively close. make room for guitar solos if they are added in there. -the topic? can you send me the song in an mp3? (skype: systemofanup1).

How to tell what Key Signature a song is in?

in

I've been struggling a lot with this lately. Our teachers have taught us to use the acronyms FACE & EGBDF to remember all the scales. But I'm still having troubling figuring out how to tell what key its in once put into sheet music and sight reading. Any help?

Answer: 
If your trying to figure out the key signature (not what lines are what notes) you look at place where the key signature is at. This is the order of sharps: FCGDAEB Order of flats: BEADGCF For sharps, you look at how many there are. If there are example 4 sharps, you count up to the forth sharp in order. So, FCGD. Then the key is the last sharp up one letter name. So, that would be D. One letter name up (in the alphabet btw) is E. The piece, scale whatever your doing is in E major. Now for flats. Exactly the same with a few changes... First you count how many flats there are. For example say there was 6 flats, you count up to the sixth flat in order. So, BEADAG. Then the key is the last flat down one letter name. So, that would be G. One letter name down from g (again in the alphabet, not order) is f. The piece, scale again whatever it is is in F major. This rule does not apply to C major (no flats or sharps) and F major (only 1 flat which is B flat) Hope I helped :)

How to get rid of the beat in a song and leave the lyrics the artist has sang on Audacity?

in

My friend (whose a DJ) wants inspiration to create a song he going to do but he said if i can help out.

Answer: 
It Might Be Possible But I Havent Heard Of Anyone Doing It . The Music Is Meshed With The Song So You Could Phase The Vocals Out But The Beat Would Still Be There. And If You Where To Maybe Get The Beat Away From The Vocals You Would Probably Cut Out The Transients That Are Critical To Your Vocals. But On The Other Hand If You Were Going To Try To Get The Beat Without The Vocals It Really In A Way Only Works If The Vocals Are Panned To The Center Of The Beat And Not Like Panned To The Left And Right. You Should Probably Talk To An Engineer They Would Probably Know Alot More About it.

How to write a song without instruments?

in

I have lyrics but I can NEVER figure out a good tune for the lyrics.
So I just have a notebook with lyrics but no tune.
I don't know how to play ANY instrument at all, i dont know how to read, write, or write the musical notes. I tried learning piano and guitar but i realized im not interested in instruments. Also, im not the type of person who likes to learn how to play any instrument except my voice.

Any tips? Ideas?

Answer: 
I have the same problem except I play both guitar and keyboard. I use the guitar to help with the melody but sometimes I can't find one with the guitar to what I do is read the lyrics over and over till I know them of by heart. Then stand up and read them aloud several times as though your just talking. Soon you might find it develops it's own rhythm. Then just start singing it in any tune that comes to you and it might Sound really bad but if you do It enough over and over, you will establish little bits of melody that you do like and keep Reworking them until they sound right to You and before you know it You will have the whole song. Once you have The basic idea of the melody, sing and record It into a recorder and listen to it. Then put it away for a day or two then go back to it and Listen again. You might find there will be several things you wanna change in the melody then record it again. Repeat this pattern until you are 100% satisfied with the melody. If you wanna take it further and make it into music then all you need it a microphone, a computer, and music making program. I use "Music Magix" you use audio loops to create the sound you want for your song and adjust the music notes. You have guitar loops, drum loops and bass loops. And you can download several other loops from certain websites. After making your melody Into real music, then you can record your vocals and edit them to clear up Any too high or low frequencies and add effects. And if you are super duper filthy rich, you can hire a band and pay for a professional recording session in a proper recording studio.

How to put music to lyrics and how to sing better?

in

I am a wanna be musician and I need to know how to put my lyrics to music. I want to be able to do it for piano and guitar. I also need to know how to better stay in pitch and on note. Any advice? I'll take what ever you can give me.
Thanks so much it means a lot to me because all I've ever wanted to be was a musician.

Answer: 
It sounds like you have words and a melody, and need chord changes and rhythm arrangements. First, determine the notes of the melody. Then using music theory and experimentation of different modes, pick or try chords until you find what it is you wanted to create. This means you need good pitch, and a chromatic tuner. Also, music theory lessons. This is how you learn how to identify changes, and build chords in keys, and key changes, and all kinds of crazy stuff. That means reading and writing music.
