Writing a New Rock Song
So you have written a new rock song and now you need to get the major record companies to go crazy with it. Well, unless you are super famous or have some kind of public persona, you’re going to need some time to get that song in front of the right people. And although most songs will do just fine without being on the radio, you should really give your new rock song some time to shine before you send it out to the masses. You can always send it to your friends and family but it’s always better to get them to actually sing it for you.
One thing that you’ll want to do is to go crazy with the advertising for the song. You could have a contest where the winner gets a gift certificate or something similar so that they feel like they’ve won something. But you also need to let as many people know about the new song as possible so that there’s less competition for radio spots. You could join up with other artists and try to sell their music for a fee, which will obviously drive up the prices but at least you’ll be getting the exposure that you deserve and the song will have more exposure.
The key to writing a new rock song is to be yourself and let your band perform it just as it was written. If you’re not happy with it, the audience will pick up on that. If you make a mistake during the performance, just move on and try another singer. The key is to make your performance the best you can. After your performance, give your audience a chance to judge for themselves if they agree with you on your new rock song.
