|How do you know when a song is finished or needs no more changes?
You never do......
You get a feeling. You just know when to stop, especially if you follow a standard 32-bar structure. You can either stick with that or just do whatever. Personally, I think it's better to have a basic concept to my songs, so whenever I play them I can just improvise some parts to make it sound better or just for fun really. Sometimes the best things come out of improvising, especially when you're really into the music while your playing it because it sort of blends in with your emotions and it brings out a better aura when you're playing in front of others. If something doesn't sound right to me, I'll usually change it straight away, cause I don't think it's the best thing to linger around one particular part. If there's something iffy about it, just change it. It's just easier, to me. Besides, I might come up with something better anyway!
They are never finished they age like children and you make the necessary adjustments.
The song tells you.
When I can't listen to it anymore!:)
After riding around in my truck with the windows up, volume cranked, and there is not a moment in the song when i want to turn it down.
i'm not really dealing with that quite yet
i know because i get a certain feeling when its done
I'm Normally Never Content,There Always Seems to Be Something Else that Can be Done but Ultimately that Can Result in Total Overkill. Sometimes You have to Leave it a While and Go Back with Fresh Ears before You can Fully Decide if the Track is Finished.
A song for me is finished when its recorded, up to that point it can all change but after its recorded thats it done no more messing around with it. Fans want to hear a version of the song the recognise as well, so if you go changing too much from the album version you ruin their experience.
when it all sounds full enough and all the tones im looking for are present.
I just know.
I know a song is finished when I play it over and over from beginning to end & it keeps it's form & arrangement every time. If a song still needs changes I'll feel very uneasy about playing it & the arrangements will keep shifting. I don't feel very in control of the process lol.
Well if I'm allowed to say the trouth. I'm never shure.
I have a policy of when I've done it and I'm happy that's it. You could spend forever changing minor things which don't really matter.
