In our new series Making The Chorus Bigger we will examine numerous
ways to get your chorus to get to the size you want it to be. We will
examine the many tricks that can be utilized to make this happen.

One of the classic pop tricks to make a chorus bigger is to double the vocal once it gets to the chorus. By leaving the verse with a single vocal you keep an intimacy and smaller size. Therefore, when the chorus hits you get a bigger, smoother sound from a nice tight double. Make sure to get a very tight second performance of the lead vocal or you will add a big mound of sloppiness to your chorus.
