Ticket 3: Make Everything A Hook




For a much more in depth discussion of this ticket go here

Little guitar riffs, 'lead drumming', swarmandals, anything can provide a hook. How do you know when you've got one? Easy. You want to break off from singing the melody to sing the guitar riff/drum fill or whatever.

Baker Street - Gerry Rafferty
Layla - Derek & The Dominos
Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton
