1. We have our "instrumentation", the choice of color for the piece of music

2. Notice how the bass guitar, the drums, and guitar are not in each other's way.

3.Notice how the drummer keeps the high-hat closed for quite parts and open to introduce climactic parts as well.

These are all arrangment tools you can think about when thinking about what type of song you want to write. HAVE FUN!!!!

Do whatever crazy idea that comes to mind. Just make sure it's congruent with the arrangment. Also don't be afraid to reference your favorite artist's tracks. By all means DO THAT!
