Stringy Strings

Thinking about the way I arrange strings. There are many ways in which strings can be used to enhance songs…….They can create a wonderful wash of sound adding texture and depth. Whilst the wash of sound may be desirable in some songs it is good to also explore others ways the strings could be used.

Another method of using strings is to create some counter melodies. You can do this by finding an interesting musical part in the song, the hook for example and create a short phrase to respond to that part. This gives the strings and opportunity to shine and create a different texture within the song. It’s about finding the right space within a song for this to happen.
