How to write a good, catchy instrumental to play in your favourite music video
An instrumental to sing in your music video may seem simple, but an instrumental to actually sing is just as important.

Try adding a melody, or even a couple of instruments to your song, to help bring the video together.
If there’s a vocal in your song that doesn’t quite fit, you may want to consider using a different melody or instrument, or creating a new melody.
