Let’s dig in and hear what are the top three tips the expert got to narrate:

1. Get to the Business

The beginning is regularly the hardest piece of the songwriting procedure. Building up your song’s primary tune or focal chorale is considered by some to be the best spot to start composing your next track. When you have your hook or key chord progression, you can construct the remainder of your lyrics around it. Be that as it may, don’t stress in case you’re battling to locate the ideal tune straight away, this strategy isn’t for everybody.

Beginning with your tune’s fundamental riff or hook isn’t a perfect strategy for each lyricist. A few musicians like to start their track by penning down a stellar introduction, which will lead them normally into the remainder of the melody, while others will get the verses down first, and afterward stress over the tune a while later. There’s no standard. It’s down to the lyricist, the melody, and the first motivation to decide your beginning stage. The key is to get to the business and begin working.

“I have an organized songwriting process. I start with the music and attempt to concoct melodic thoughts, then the song, then the following hook, and the lyrics come last. A few people start with the verses first since they realize what they need to discuss, and they simply compose an entire bundle of melodious thoughts, however for me, the music mentions to me what to discuss,” says George Khouri.

2. Invest Ample Energy in Writing Lyrics

Except if you’re creating instrumental music, the lyrics are seemingly the most significant piece of your song. Writing lyrics can regularly be the most disappointing and troublesome part of the songwriting procedure, particularly for beginner lyricists with no expertise.

Having a clear idea of what your melody will be about is a decent beginning. You could record precisely what you need to say with your words, at that point, mess around with the musicality, structure, and rhythm of your words to fit them around your song. A strong musical hook for your ensemble is especially significant, while the stanzas and bridge can be worked around your focal theme.

“I contemplate over the verses; I truly do. I’ll think of one line in a day, and afterward, it maybe two or three days before I concoct the rhyming line,” says George Khouri.

3. Preserve an instant, spur of the moment inspiration.

There’s nothing more awful as a lyricist than thinking of a stunning tune or hook, just to forget what it was an hour later totally. Forgetting your idea can be genuinely frustrating, so it’s essential to make a note of your thought while it’s new in your brain, regardless of whether it’s simply recorded rapidly on your smartphone or jotted on a piece of paper. You’ll be glad of the memo later when you begin working for your next hit.

“You can’t produce motivation, so a ton of it is as yet a cat-and-mouse game for me. There’s still a great deal of mystery to songwriting. I don’t have a technique that I can return to - they either come or don’t,” says George Khouri.

We hope that these fantastic tips will ease out your songwriting procedure.
