How to Write a New Rock Song
Writing a new rock song can be a challenge for some songwriters. If you’re writing about something that you haven’t done before, the process can seem daunting. However, if you keep a few things in mind, you can write something that people will enjoy and get enjoyment from. When it comes to music, there is an old saying that goes, “A song is only as good as the last song that came before it.” This saying holds true when it comes to writing a new rock song. The last thing you want is to be stuck in a rut with a song that no one wants to hear again.
One thing that many rock musicians do is to create a song cycle. A song cycle is a sequence of songs, where each one takes on the role of a different member of the group. For instance, during a rock song cycle, a new rock song may take on the role of the lead vocalist, the rhythm guitarist, and the lead guitar player, and so on. There are many great songs out there that don’t take on any specific roles, but they are still considered rock songs because of their genre and the way they are written.
If you’re just starting out and don’t yet know how to write a rock song, don’t worry. There are plenty of great rock songwriters out there who have never written a rock song before. There is no need to feel intimidated. Just take baby steps until you are ready to tackle the real stuff – rock songs.
