I generally don't write lyrics (the ones I come up with are abysmal) but this interests me as well. I'd say doing the chords first doesn't really say much about your song. I prefer getting a guitar...

20Tigers, you forgot "Bad to the Bone". That song's main riff and soloing backing is mainly the 12-bar with a motif. It's perhaps the most badass use of the 12-bar blues as well.

I've lost count how many decisions I make with every remix. I'd say at least 10 with the main melody and drumbeat alone. Then about 20 with the basslines. Then about 10 decisions while mixing the...
