Watch the Create an Ending online guitar lesson by Ravi from 1-2-3 Songwriting
Nothing new here. We just need to find a great way to leave our listener. Decide whether a fade or something more final is most appropriate for your song. Again, even if I choose a fade, I will often write an alternate ending for when I'm playing live. So, I'm going to get out of my song, but I'm going to make it a deceptive cadence, meaning that it won't quite resolve. After all, I'm still trying to show her that I'm the one. The jury is still out as to whether or not she's going to realize it! Decide how you are going to get out of your song and check that off your list!
