By

Nov 14, 2017 Beginning, General beginning Comments are off

When writing a song, there is a standard structure that is used. The structure can be varied but basically does the following:

Introduction (Usually instrumental 4 to 8 bars)

Verse (Singing starts. Many times it is the same chords as the Intro or Chorus 8 to 12 bars)

Pre Chorus  (Or Segway. Small instrumental section 2 to 4 bars – builds to next section)

Chorus (Many times the name of the song. Most remembered or hooky part)

Segway

2nd Verse (Tells next part of story)

Chorus

Bridge (Different then all other sections-breaks up song)

Solo (Guitar, sax or piano etc.)

Chorus

Outro (Variation on Introduction, slight variation or new key – modulation)
