How to Create the Eurodance Riff - Tips and Tricks

It's time for another post dedicated to tips and tricks for creating the eurodance riff.

1. Keep in mind the V shape! 

This is an essential thing for the eurodance style. Notes go up and down, up and down and so on. This is what gives the dance movement!

There are 2 variants:

The UP V form (down-up)

The DOWN V form (up-down)

2. Use the 2 notes trick instead one (works good especially when working with 1 octave distance between notes)

3. Watch for continuity between the bars!! - when changing bars make sure your notes don't jump too much! :)

4. Modify the pitch for selected notes 

Use the following trick when making riffs:

Take some notes from the standard V shape and move them up or down - you will find great riffs!

Good luck!
