Right now I'm in the habit of 4 bar intro/ 8 bar hook/ 12 bar verse / 8 bar hook / 4 bar bridge / 12 bar verse / 8 bar hook / 4 bar outro. All numbers doubled depending on how you look at it. I work at faster tempos so they're all doubled but if I remember from a past video you work in normal time so I decided to word it that way. Sometimes if I'm working at a slower tempo I'll remove the bridge from that structure. But those are the ones that tend to work best for me. Of course if I'm doing boom bap which I do occasionally I'll work around 85 to 95 in which case it's usually 4 bar intro / 8 bar hook / 16 bar verse / 8 bar hook / 16 bar verse / 8 bar hook / outro. Occasionally I'll go right into the verse after the intro but I haven't been doing that lately. Probably should so I don't get to robotic with my structuring.

Thank you Navie! Your channel proves to be invaluable and underrated in the content you post. I'm beginning to get back into my production after taking a brief hiatus, so this type of content is very much helpful. I find myself arranging in a way that sort of resembles what you've talked about, but this solidifies what I know. Creating variety and not making my music sound so repetitive is something I struggle with along with mixing. Thanks again!

Great video! Not that it matters, but (since I mostly do east coast/boom bap) I usually arrange as follows: 1.) 4-8 bar intro 2.) 16 bar verse 3.) 8 Bar hook 4.)16 Bar verse 5.) 8 Bar hook 6.) 8 Bar bridge 7.) 8 Bar hook (x2) 8.) Outro

Maybe this is a hip hop thing but typically bridges come after the chorus or drop. And it's not about building anticipation, that's what the verse/build is for. The bridge is a break. It's a breather. You just hyped your listener, the song hit it's high energy peak, you need to hit a calm before you hype them up again.

@Navie D Fair point. It is used as a separation for a variety of reasons. BTW, Your vids are stellar. Keep kicking ass. P.S. Sorry for the late reply.
Navie D

Fair enough! I have just heard so many examples of bridges showing up in so many strange places, that I was a bit hesitant to say "this is exactly where a bridge should go"

Let me ask you this - have you ever toyed with the idea of just doing stacked loops with no or very little arrangement? I find that I spend a lot of production time on the structure and arrangement, because it takes (me anyway) time to figure out which notes to cut off early for the change-up, etc. (i.e., I don't usually just use the blocks and leave it at that - I like to add the candy or effects automation to transition) On the one hand, that's the only thing I'd feel comfortable releasing as a final song, but on the other, for beats for lease - how many people listen to the whole beat anyway? And can't it actually be annoying for a listener to remember where the changes are? Like for the rappers I know - one of them gets annoyed counting off the bars and would seem to prefer just hearing the main theme over and over. (kind of like what you said with the A1A2A3 - minimal changes... I have been thinking of doing more like that myself to save time) Anyway, I am just thinking, if one doesn't even know which beats are gonna sell more - why not just offer the layout and additional production as an after-service?

Because most ppl have SUCH a SHORT attention span I usually include an 808 hitting once during the intro to create some anticipation, as well a catchy snippet of the chorus.
BRUTHA WAR

@Navie D Yes. Between 4 & 8 bars, depending on the tempo. I'm also a lyrical artist with a strong message, but I've had to learn to simplify in order to hold people's attention. dramatic pauses, breakdowns & change ups in your vocals & beat keep them listening.. the balance between anticipation & unpredictable creates interest. I have a naturally lower tone voice, but i usually pitch it up a bit, because it sounds more energetic that way. The artist's way is an interesting juxtaposition of intentionality & experimentation.
Navie D

That's a smart way of going about it. Do you keep the intro short relatively speaking

Hmm typically including a drop, or adding a drum roll right before the verse is also a good way to go. Or a reverse crash/riser

I'm not usually one to do any type of self promotion but I owe a lot to navie and his videos. I made a beat after watching this today its on my channel. I tried to use one of his structures along with a ton of stuff I have learned in prior vids. Navie is one of the best out there very clear and descriptive, plus most of his stuff can be used in any d.a.w. I use caustic 3 on my tablet for instance.
Buddysmoken
Buddysmoken 2 yıl önce
Caustic 3 is a very powerful mobile app. It is good for beginners because its very straightforward and easy-to-use. You can check it out in the play store or @ singlecellsoftware.com. it loads wav files in either the beatbox or p.c.m. synthesizer. There is also 8 on board synthesizer , f.m synth, modular synth, sub synth, a baseline synth ( i believe is modeled after tr-303),k-synth ( string sounds),pad synth , 8 bit synth. If you need a mobile d.a.w I suggest checking it out. The only thing I don't get is plug ins or vst, most vst sounds icon find in wav format.
