A short Guide for writing a Song

One of the most fantastic pieces that anybody could write is a song. For one, it is much like a poem but it works differently. Poems rely on the words for the rhythm while songs can rely on several things such as rhythm instruments like drums. And just like any other form of creative writing, it often begins with an inspiration.

While there are songs that write themselves in a matter of minutes, there are those that need some more work in order to be crafted perfectly. Take for example two songs by Led Zeppelin. First is the one called Rock n’ Roll which was written immediately after hearing the drummer play a ‘rock and rolly’ beat. Then there’s ‘Dazed and Confused’ which was written before the band was formed. It was only until the band reworked it that it became the classic that it is today.
