Following up on the previous blog post about song form overview, let us dive deeper into one of the most basic songforms used in popular music - strophic songform. The strophic song form may also be referred to as the "AAA" songform or the One-Part songform. This means to say that the various sections of the song would follow a common theme or structure throughout. Many classical songs from the 17th century follow this structure though the strophic form has been dated back to much earlier when poems were set to music. The following article gives insight to this song form, its structure and examples to go with it. It also includes a few tips to keep the songs written in this manner a little more interesting. http://www.songstuff.com/song-writing/article/song-form-guide-aaa/ Be sure to share and like the article if you find it useful.
