Monthly ‪#‎Songwriting Tips from #SongRegistration.com… (and tribute to Freddie Mercury)

.
First, some tips…
.
1. For richer ‪#‎vocals‬, try doubling some of your vocal lines and shifting pitches.
.
2. Create vivid metaphors and use strong similes to embellish your song’s narrative. Not only to tell the story more effectively, but to create memorable imagery for your listener.
.
3. Even if working with others isn’t your thing, step outside your comfort zone and give it a try. Collaboration opens horizons and will help introduce fresh ideas into your songwriting process.
.
4. Staring at an empty sheet? Engage with other modes of music or literature and the ideas are almost guaranteed to flow. Do this consistently, and the pages may write themselves.
.
5. Always protect your ‪#‎copyrights‬ by professionally registering your ‪#‎songs‬! With SongRegistration.com, it’s cheap, quick, and super-easy (and used by ‪#‎composers‬ worldwide).

Now, about ‪#‎Freddie‬…
.
1. Born Farrokh Bulsara in Zanzibar (a tiny island group off the coast of East Africa), he officially became ‪#‎Freddie_Mercury‬ in 1970 when ‪#‎Queen‬ was formed.
.
2. While his same-sex affairs were well-known, he actually left most of his estate to ex-girlfriend and “only true friend,” Mary Austin.
.
3. Though many would disagree, he swore ‪#‎Bohemian_Rhapsody‬ was nothing more than “rhyming nonsense.” He wrote much of Crazy Little Thing Called Love in the bathtub — was an avid stamp collector (as was John Lennon) — and loved cats (at one time owning ten).
.
4. While researching his operatic vocal chops, we came across this nifty program that showcases the extraordinary octave-ranges of many famous singers, including Freddie’s: http://goo.gl/jyRJxt
.
5. But beyond the killer voice and iconic stage presence was his songwriting. In an industry filled with repetition and banality, he easily shifted — even combined — genres (opera, rock, metal, rockabilly, gospel, ballad…) and turned complex song structures into poetic (and commercial) treasures.
.
6. His first and only formal acknowledgement that he had AIDS came, sadly, the day before he died in 1991. He was 45. RIP, Freddie. There will never be another. You are the champion, my friend…
