• Rules for Picking Songs for Organic Arranging

     

     

    1.     Appropriateness of content (Keep it family friendly)

     

     

    2.     Can someone in the group sing the solo? (i.e. do we have a rapper, someone who has that high or low range, someone who can belt…)

     

     

    3.     Is there enough instrumental content to build off of? (It’s very hard to work with just a bass line, just a beat, or just a synth)

     

     

    4.     Is there enough variation to make an arrangement interesting? (Avoid repetitive songs)

     

     

    5.     Has it been done to death?
