Dogs are one of those animals that are just too incredible to not love properly, for that reason they became the world’s most popular pets and is a fact that can be claimed after obtaining the statistics of millions of people around the world that are dogs lovers or at least counts with one dog in their property. However, dogs are such amazing pets that even music bands are starting to adopt the culture of making songs about their close and best friends, their dogs! Which can be a pretty fantastic theory but in practice is not that simple because making a rock ballad is complicated by standard measures, now imagine if you have to add more things, so let’s discover how to manage everything correctly, stay tuned.
STEP #1: DON’T RUSH THINGS, PREPARE YOURSELF.
This means that don’t try to make a rock ballad for your dog at the moment in which you get it because that will end incredibly bad for multiple reasons, being the first one the fact that you won’t have enough good quality moments with your dog to be able to express them to the public by a ballad for that reason, take things with calm and after some months or even years, you will find the inspiration for that rock ballad in which you will shower them with love that your relationship with your dog is something unique that not everyone can flex about.
STEP #2: STAY IN THE GENRE, FIND THE RIGHT WORDS AND LYRICS.
When creating a song about different things that are not so much created to rock is difficult to make a good ballad since the music genre will feel off due to the selected words, for that reason, you should write and decide everything carefully since it’s very easy to be out of sync and everything will go to waste, just find inspiration with the previous step and try to do your best to stay on the topic with the correct sounds and expressions and after that, your ballad will be completed in no time, work carefully and ask for the help of your crewmates if necessary.
STEP #3: USE MULTIPLE COMBINATIONS OF ELEMENTS, TOPICS, AND SOUNDS.
Using multiple combinations of effects, sounds and everything else related to the topic will be a good way of finding inspiration and creating a good rock ballad that will be entertaining enough for the fanatics and for the public, also make sure to include your dog’s breed or personality in the lyrics, don’t try to use the pet in your title or introduction and forget about it in the next step of the lyrics, just remember that this will be a kind of tribute towards your best friend, don’t make everything messed up to the point that the public won’t understand what kind of topic are you using, be careful with this and remember, a good ballad will be the one that takes proper advantage of the sounds, effects, and proper lyrics, otherwise everything will be pointless, do your best and the results will kick in! Good luck!
