You came and everything changed me
Happiness has found me
I know we can make it
Today our life begins
my class shocked me today.
akalain mong pagawin kami ng isang verse at kantahin sa harap. OMY. at take note, original dapat. well, as you can see, ayan yung sakin. Today-My-Life-Begins-by-Bruno-Mars inspired. 🙂 actually, i just changed some words. HAHA! pero it can describe what i really feel right now. 😛
pano nga ba gumawa ng kanta? it may sound difficult pero here are some “tips” our specialist shared kanina. well, he’s not a pro and not really a singer/composer. pero these might help.. 😉
- think of a theme/topic.
tungkol san ba yung kanta mo? about your love? your friends? about sa recent na nangyari sayo? about your dog? your family? ANYTHING. it can be anything. and this one, i think, is one of the most important things na dapat pagisipan when making a song.
- just write. don’t narrate but be concise.
hindi mo kailangan ng nobela kada isang verse. 4 to 6 lines will do. also, hindi mo rin kailangang mag rhyme agad and may melody agad. just write. express what you want to express in a concise way. 🙂 it’s like writing a poem actually. there can be lots of metaphor or lots of drama or anything you want. ikaw bahala. 🙂
- add the extra ingredients.
put the rhyme. you can rephrase the lines if you want as long as andun parin yung sense. try to add music in it. you can try to be original as for the melody pero for a start, pwede narin kung may reference kang kanta/tono.
the best time to write a song is kapag inspired ka! just wait for it! wag mong pilitin. kasi baka mawalan ng sense yung kanta kung pipilitin mo. well, syempre except nalang dun sa magaling talaga mag compose. :)) GOODLUCK! haha. 🙂
