What does a sparrow tattoo on the forearm mean?
Many people get swallow tattoos and sparrow tattoos mixed up. If you associate sparrow tattoos with a sailor he may get very upset with you. Many people use them interchangeably but there is a big difference. The majority of the bird tattoos that you see are swallows although many people call them sparrows. Learn the difference before getting the tattoo. The birds themselves are very different. A swallow is a very common species. It has a beautiful blue color, with a long forked tail and curved, pointed wings. Sparrows are small, plump brown-grey birds with short wings. These are very different birds to be confused so easily. You very rarely see true sparrow tattoos. If you do see sparrow tattoos, they are usually expressing some type of religious reference. Paraphrasing Matthew 10:29-31, Do not two sparrows sell for little value? Yet not one will fall to the ground without our Father's knowledge.... Therefore have no fear. Ye are of more value than many sparrows. On the other hand, swallow tattoos are very popular. These are the birds connected to sailors. Swallows tend to stay close to land so when a sailor would see a swallow, he knew that land was close. Another trait of the swallow is to return to the same mating place year after year. Sailors felt swallow tattoos were a charm to make sure they returned back home safely. Swallow tattoos were also a sign of how seasoned a sailor was. New sailors would get their first tattoo after 5,000 miles at sea, then another after the next 5,000 miles. After that nautical star tattoos were used., love

How do you compose a song?
It really depends on the person I think. Some people come up with a melody first, some people a line. Generally it's the chorus that comes first and then you build from that other times it's just a random line and people will build around it. It just really depends on how you work best and how you work creatively as a person. Answer Many times, the song title is decided upon first. When you know what the song is called, it's easier to stay on subject. Some songwriters may write the melody first, some start with the lyrics. There is no right or wrong way. One of the most important things to consider is the structure of the song. All modern commercial songs contain some or all of the following elements: Verse, chorus, bridge and hook. The Verse is the section of the song that tells most of the story. Each verse will have basically the same melody, but different lyrics. It builds toward and leads into the chorus. The Chorus is the part that everybody remembers about a song. It usually contains the hook and the title, and is repeated several times throughout the song. When you hear the chorus, you know exactly what the song is about. The Bridge or "middle eight" should be completely different, both musically and lyrically, from the verse and chorus. Not all songs have or need a bridge. But when written effectively, a bridge provides the opportunity to add another angle to the story. You can change perspective from first-person to second or third-person if you wish. You can also change from present-tense to past or future-tense. The Hook is the strongest line of lyric sung over the strongest line of melody. It is usually in the chorus, is nearly always the title, and is always the most memorable part of the song. It's the part that gets stuck in your head whether you like the song or not! It's in the way these elements are arranged that determine song structure. Answer You generally have either a tune or lyrics, sometimes both, rolling around in you head. You find a blank music composition sheet, usually obtained at a music store that sells sheet music, sit in front of a piano and start putting the notes that you think are in your head onto the composition sheet. Otherwise, you need to be very gifted like Ludwig van Beethoven. Answer Techniaclly: Learn at least basic music technicals and how to read/play sheet music/tabs/your own system. Excell at your instrument/meduim. Practice, screw around, and experiment. A more artsy answer: Music can be created purely on a basis of musical theory or by pure expression, but mostly by combination of the two. Basic music can be created quickly with knowledge of just a few chords and scale structures, but more complex compositions might require studying theory, harmony and notation. However, theory is not completely necessary in developing music, especially in modern music. Many people learn music by ear, and use what they've heard to create new melodies. To begin writing something, it's best to have some sort of artistic idea of what the song means, and some inspiration. Fool around with melodic ideas in your head, once you find something that sounds like a melody, use your musical knowledge to build on it. Another aproach is to just sit down and say " I'm going to write something in G major, with a i iv v progression (as a random example.) Once you have a chord progression, you can build a melody, whether it's vocal, instruental or improvised. (improvisation is a whole other story). Answer Melody always comes first. Harmony is a consequence of melody. It can be proved over and over again just by simply listening within your own head. There are certain natural relationships that preside in all styles and eras of music that are constants simply from the tendency of the natural resolutions. The consistent characteristic of melodic ideas tends to capture a listener's attention and are said to possess a melodic presence. Any melody that has presence will be a melody that the ear can understand meaning that a musical person can sing, hear and remember the melodic ideas. Your ear does not hear harmony first without aurally understanding how melody works. You do not sit down and say you are going to write something in G major with a I - IV - V progression because you are deceiving yourself. It is through melody that your ear understands the natural harmony that goes with it. Melodies were constructed first with the beginnings of humankind and still remain the first step in a successful composition. Natural resolution tendencies are described in the cycle of fifths or fourths with the tritone of the 4th and 7th degrees of a major scale. These scale degrees along with the 3rd and tonic resolutions dictate harmony. In other words, the 4th degree resolves to the 3rd degree and the 7th degree resolves to the tonic. After knowing the variety of natural relationships and substitutes in the correct order, than it becomes a matter of substitution of choice as to which of 70 plus harmonic ideas you would like to imply that would relate to the home base key. The melody still remains no matter what.

Asked in Flyleaf
Is Flyleaf a Christian band?
Yes, all five members of Flyleaf are of the Christian faith, but they do not consider themselves solely a Christian band. When asked about this, lead singer Lacey Mosley once said, "We're a band. It's part of who we are, so it comes out in our music, and it's the fuel for what we do. And finding faith saved my life so I'm not ashamed of it at all. And most of our album reflects that." so therefor flyleaf is a christian band but not strict to only christian music. Most of their songs they have are about God or about those who's faith saved them. Or in the case of the Columbine shooting she wrote Cassie, about Cassie Bernall and Rachel Scott and how the died because the believed in God.

What does the song again by flyleaf mean?
It's like if you have a problem and you've looked for a way to get out of it but couldn't find one you turn to Jesus and ask Him for help I think that's what she means by the lyrics (here you are down on you're knees again trying to find Air to breath again and only surrender Will help you now I love you please see and believe again) pretty much it means Jesus loves you and if you turn to Him He will help you with you're problems

What does a swan tattoo symbolize?
A swan represents different things to different cultures. In general it represents compassion, freedom and beauty. But it's also a symbol of music (swan song), and they are mythically said to sing beautifully. They're meant to represent good luck. The swan is also said to have healing abilities. In medicine cards, pulling the Swan card suggests that you should be aware of your surroundings, to focus on one reality or the other, listen to what your own body and mind is telling you. Might also keep in mind that the swan represents an enduring love entering your life. To suffer a loss with grace, is also very important as a swan symbol. Also, swans mate for life. A swan tattoo can very well be interpreted as a symbol of eternal faith and loyalty to one's soul mate.
