    Default Parts of a song, bridge chorus.. etc

    just out of curiosity, in case i ever want to start a band, and just for the heck of it, what is exactly the Bridge, Chorus and Verse of a song, not only that, but how does it change what you play, for example, the music changes in the bridge and then the Chorus then the verse and so on

    Brigdge: contrasting section. Can be in a different key, tempo or signature. Often used to prepare for the climax of the song

    Verse: usually two or more sections with exactly the same music but different words

    Chorus: (refrain) also contrasts with verse usually by means of greater dynamics and instumentation.

    Guitar solo: the whole purpose of the song

    The Chorus is the part everyone sings along to in the crowd, cause they (should) know the lyrics because they are repeated.

    Cool Parts of a song: Bridge, chorus, etc...

    Every song tells a story, or so says Rod Stewart...

    Chorus (a/k/a "refrain") is the hook that attracts you to the story...some songs start with the chorus...

    Verses are chapters or scenes in the story...some songs open with the first part of the story then go to the chorus...

    Bridge is as it sounds--links one or more scenes in the story...and to the climax of the story...

    Coda is the epilogue of the story...

    Yeah, amp...it interferes with the DRUM solo, the imaginative focus of the song...the main point of the whole tune, bro'!
