1. Main Chorus
Firstly I start with what to write about, I think of a special moment, event, theme whatever I feel
that may inspire me, then I start with the main chorus and once I get the hook I progress with the rest of the song.
2. Choose a song structure.
My next step is I choose a song structure like verse/ chorus / verse /chorus / bridge / chorus. sometimes I pop in a pre chorus to build anticipation emotion for the listener.
3. Find a Melody
Now its time to find a melody! I sing out loud lots of lyrics and find a nice melody that fits the feel of the song mainly focusing on the chorus because I want to create lots of emotion. Then I add the chord progressions and build on the song from there.
