song structure.

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by MCBTunes, Feb 7, 2005.


  1. Can anyone explain or send me to a web site that will explain a songs structure.... I'm trying to build a song in power tab, punk, rock, pop etc. On my bass but I dont exactly know how to work it and what should go into each section of the song.

    like what goes into a bridge, where does the bridge go. Like that but with most parts of a song... there should be a web site or a help section explaining this somewhere right?

    Also the PowerTab program should (like any other software) have a "Help" tab that should explain any questions you may have with the program itself.

    Also check out this month's Accoustic Guitar Magazine. The one with John Fogerty on it. It has an article on tips and basic song writing.
