We're going to talk about songwriting. Last week we talked about hooks and now we're going to talk about verses. Your verses; first verse is introduction, especially if you don't do the hook first in your song, you start out with verse 1. You want to give an introduction to your hook. You want to bring your audience in to your main message which is your hook. So verse 1, treat it as an introduction. Be very general, keep it vague, and keep your audience guessing what's going to come in the hook or what's going to come next. Then your pre-hook just simply builds up to your hook. We can get into that in another video.
For your verse 2 that's when you usually want to go right down into the subject and make it real detail really get deep with it. Explain yourself. At this point you want your listener to just be really involve intune to your story. Kind of like a movie. You know an hour into a good movie you know you're in it. You're not thinking about nothing else but what's going to happen next. So use your verse 2 for your discriptions and details.
So that's some tips about verses. We discuss hooks last week, next week we'll talk about I think it's the bridge. We're going to talk about your brideg and how you can use that in your songwriting process. Share it with your friends. I'm sure your friends would appreciate it if you give them some education on a subject that's really kind of hard to find and real good information on so stay tune for more.
