Intro: How to Write a Country Song
I've been really into country music lately, and after listening to this genre for a while i noticed a few similarities in themes. Not all, but most of the country songs out there talk about a failed relationship, rain, your truck, drinking, and a bunch of other sad themes. So i decided that these themes made country music easy to replicate. It was easy enough for me to make a song, so I'm sure you can do it too.
You will need-
- Writing utensil
- Musical instrument (optional)
Try to focus on these subjects-
-A failed relationship
-Focus around the chords G and D
Start writing your first verse. (Writing about personal experiences helps the writing process flow. Write about what you know.)
Come up with a catchy chorus, something that can be repeated.
Write the second verse. The second verse is much like the first. The second verse is to give more detail about whatever your writing about.
Continue to the bridge. The bridge is different from the rest of the song. The bridge usually includes a transition of the key. (Transitioning of the key can be made by your voice as well as a instrument.)
Come up with a tune and sing it all together.
