• 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?
