How to Sing With Grammar – Co-ordinating Conjunctions
Sing with Grammarsaurus is a guide for people who want to learn how to sing songs with proper grammar. The author, Jonathon Gray, has written a very good book on grammar, and this one is mostly about song structure and rules. This book is a great grammar resource for anyone looking to learn or improve their singing. It uses a modern approach to teaching grammar rules in a fun way.
In the book, the author shows you a way to organize your thoughts so you can sing better. His rules are very easy to follow, and he makes it fun to learn. You learn how to harmonize with your lyric writing, and how to create an overall song structure using basic elements like tempo, key, verse, chorus, bridge, and adagio. There are twelve sections in this guide, and they all relate to each other and how they affect your ability to write music.
The first section is the formal rules for country songs, which you already know
This section includes formal greetings, etiquette, and how to introduce your lines. It also explains the use of meter, chorus, and verse. You can count on this section to give you some extra practice as well. There are times when you will need to use the rules in the song, and you’ll be able to refresh your memory if you remember some of these rules.
The second section is where you will learn how to write songs that use your chosen co-ordinating conjunctions
These co-ordinating forms, which are very similar to the rules you learned in the first chapter of the book, are also written out so you can see how they should be used. These are commonly called similes. They are basically a way to create images in your mind about the subject of your song. Many famous songs use these co-ordinating forms, and you can use them to create beautiful images in your own mind about what your words are really trying to say.
The third section will give you some great inspiration. It’s all about finding inspiration in the things around you
Think about nature, about people, about anything you can think of that will help you create your perfect country song. What are the most important things in your world at the moment? When was the last time you experienced a major change in your life? These are all things you should think about and document when you’re sitting down to write a country song.
If you have trouble finding things to write about, this exercise will help you get your groove on. Write down things that you know about your country song. Now try to make up an image in your mind about each one of them. What is it that they have in common? Do they have a certain kind of sound?
Look at the beginning and the end of each line in the country song
See if there are any co-ordinating conjunctions in place that make sense in your song. You may find that an apple is at the beginning of the verse, an apple is at the end of the verse and an apple is at the end of the chorus. You just may find the solution to your problem while you’re sitting there and writing.
Remember that song structure is a science that works with the basic elements of the song structure to give you a great co-ordinated voice and a great country song. All you have to do is put in the time and the effort and trust in the process to make it work for you. Write down the basics and see what you can learn by working with these basic co-ordinating conjunctions. Stay in the moment and enjoy it.
