Alrighty, so i wrote a song and i have all the verses down, and i wrote guitar for them, but i am having trouble coming up with a chorus, so i guess im wondering:

what makes a great chorus?
The pick of destiny wasn't made from the tooth of the devil, it was made from mine.

As a general rule of thumb, it has to have a great hook. It doesn't need to be clever, just memorable. Another common feature is that the chorus is loud and the climax of a song.

Just listen to your favorite music and get a feel for what happens in that...

Good luck!

in general, the chorus tends to be the simplest parts of a song in terms of the chordal structure, often heavily using the IV and V chords, so you don't need to go overboard.

First, write whatever the melody is in the chorus. This way, the melody won't sound like it was just added to the chord progression. But if ur keeping the same chords the entire song, just sing something over them that's different timing than the verse. Or even the SAME timing as the verse but make it something that sticks out (I Will Survive has the same melody through the entire song)

just make it a hook nobody can escape, that's the point of a chorus in most popular forms of music.
