When you end on Bowie, calling him the second coming, and drop China Girl...that's when we know you solidified. Bowie's whole catalogue is almost too hot to listen to. You gonna burn your ears, kids. Excellent Fab ish, as usual!

A much needed video to hear other music in a structural manner. I listened to music I couldn't stand but I learned something. Always a pleasure.

Correct me, but i would say that the song “Mexico“ by Jefferson Airplane is also a through composed song.

It all starts with the song, without which we have nothing to record and mix. Best explanation I've heard... the hands on approach really helps. Thank you and until next time... I'll wait.

Excellent or should i say fab ;)
Finding structure: I agree with you , but 10 is in my mind more a alternate chorus.
But first it was strange i start 2 with verse 1 but as 3 comes around i wrote bridge but then after 4, 5 comes in, and i knew that 2 is chorus and 3 is verse, then it was really easy, tough example, but very nice, the song is great btw.
Thanks for this tutorial, great!
