[Music] [Anime Openings] Help?
« on: March 19, 2015, 04:39:07 AM »
I love anime, and I love music, so why not make an opening theme? The thing is though. I've never made one before (even without vocals) and I'm not exactly sure how to go about them. Like. Where do I start? A catchy melody? the intro? the verse? What are the basic notes in a J-pop scale? is it the basic Solfege? or are there some rarely used notes? I know the basics. It has to be around 1:30 - 2:00 minutes long, needs to be fast and upbeat, usually goes Intro - Verse - Chorus - Chorus2 - Outro or Intro - Verse - Chorus - Chorus2.

I have also noted that most anime themes include most, if not all these instruments

String Ensemble (or synth strings)
Vocals (duh)
Overdriven Guitar

but yeah. My main thing is knowing where to start and knowing how long to make each segment. so. any ideas?
