Styles, Forms and Rhymes



Besides writing your lyrics, there are a few other ingredients that you need to decide on in order for me to create your MindSong. These are Style, Form and Rhyme.

Styles

Here are some examples of Music Styles for you to choose from

Pop, Rock, Pop Ballad, Reggae, Rhythm and blues, Funk, Blues, Latin, country, Hip Hop, etc.etc…

If you are not sure how to name the style that you have in mind, you can send me an MP3 file of your example after our first contact.

Forms

There are many possible forms for a Song. You can take the form of one of your favorite Top Hits as the template for your MindSong. Or,you can take one of the following examples:

Intro, Verse1, Verse2, Chorus, Verse3, Chorus, Bridge, Corus , Chorus, fade out.

Intro, Verse1, Chorus, Verse2, Chorus, Outro

Intro, Verse, Chorus, Outro

Intro, Verse, Outro.

You are also welcome to create your own form. Please keep in mind the relation between the length of your MindSong and your Valuation.

An Intro is the instrumental introduction of your Song. Sometimes it is shortly repeated in the middle of the Song.

A Verse is the part that has the same music & melody but different words. You can put 1, 2, or 3 different verses a song, depending on the length, and of course, your inspiration.

A Chorus is the part that repeats, with the same words.

A Bridge is a part that has different music and melody, often to refresh the song. Sometimes there is a little instrumental part connected with this as well, in the form of a (guitar) solo.

An Outro or Ending is the instrumental ending of the Song. But you don’t have to use one, maybe your Song will end with a repeat and fade out of the chorus.

Rhymes

Line 1 A
