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

- Paper

- Musical instrument (optional)

Try to focus on these subjects-

-Trucks

-Drinking

-Rain

-A failed relationship

-Love

Optional instruments-

-Focus around the chords G and D

Step 1:

Start writing your first verse. (Writing about personal experiences helps the writing process flow. Write about what you know.)

Step 2:

Come up with a catchy chorus, something that can be repeated.

Step 3:

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.

Step 4:

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.)

Step 5:

Come up with a tune and sing it all together.

Step 6:

    OH MY GOD! Every time I looked at the steps, I sung and played what you wrote and I absolutely love it! Thank you for the tip! I've always loved music (mostly country) but never knew how to play it! You were truly awesome!
