Im going to tell you more about songwriting. First we talked about brainstorming, hooks, verses, and bridges. Now I'm going to tell you how to close out your song. This is the simple part. Usually what I'll say or what I'll direct the artist to do as a producer is if you have a hype song if you have a real high energy song then you want an end with something a crowd can latch on to and chant as the song phases out.
So outros, for high energy songs, chant. Use some chants. You can do some "Ooo Ooo Ooo...Ooo Ooo Ooo" or you can just pick three words and just repeat that and just say, "Hands up! Hands up! Get your hands up. Hands up!" or something like that you know something real simple. Something real easy that the whole crowd, kids, to adults can sing along with and feel like they're part of the song. That's going to leave them with a good lasting impression of the song they've just heard. So all them hits out there that you hear them say "Ooo Ooo" or something. Simple melody with some simple voicings, that's what it's about. Leaving good impressions in your listener's head.
Another thing you can do for your outro. If you have an emotional song that you did or a ballad then you want to leave on an emotionally note. Give some spacy you know ambiance type stuff like background "la la's" and "Oooo" vocals and stuff that float around your head. You know that's something that the mixer will actually do with his mixing. But just be real spacy and real sparse with your voicings and your adlibs. Just get some light adlibs there with your outro and really leave that strong emotional mark on your listener so that they will continue to feel that same energy after the song has already faded out.
These are some tips now. You're not going to read that in a text book I promise you that. So yall share with your friends and next week is going to be the last video for song-writting. I'm going to tell you about how to go back over your material and revise it and really take it to the top of the charts.
