My composition “Untitled Pop Rock Song 1” is a rock song I composed in 1996. I had a working title and an idea for lyrics, but I never wrote any lyrics. Now I am putting the song out on the Internet for people to listen to and possibly write lyrics for.
The song features piano and a clean guitar on the verses, a clean and a distortion electric guitar on the choruses, and two distortion electric guitars on the bridge. I play the alto sax over the short intro, over the solo section (third verse), and over the last two choruses.
This is just a demo, and it is kind of a mix of pop and rock. If the lyrics call for more of a pop song, I would probably lessen up on the distortion on the guitars. If the lyrics called for a harder rock song, I would probably replace the saxophone with a guitar solo.
