Hey, I've been wanting to record some original tunes but I'm having some writer's block. When it comes to making the actual guitar parts, I'm dry. How do you know how to make your own riffs and such? Like how do you take from your musical influences to make your own parts?

HAHA.

Oh wow. I just totally heard it in that context too.

I used that chord movement (Bbdim - Dm - Edim - Dm) a few more times in the song, but I guess that phrase brings it out more.

Awesome.

Pretty cool s guy. I liked it, but I think a light percussion track would greatly benefit the song.

Now I have this little 'Melodic Metal' riff in my profile called Untitled Track. What do you people think?

I personally feel that it may be too hollow and simplistic. So I may layer in a shredding guitar riff.

Don't bother thinking in A aeolian or any mode for that matter. It throws you into a cage and it crashes with the chord progression.

EDIT --> I'm seriously right about this. The more you think the worst you'll play. Just follow your ears and no I don't mean pre-hearing the music

Hey guys, I've wrote a bunch of parts of songs I start to work on but then I hit a writers block and can't finish them.

Playlist of the songs I wrote

Tell me what you think and if you have any suggestions on how I can get around this whole writers block please tell me! Its killing my writing process.

Thanks!

Hi guys,

I've been set the task of composing a short piece of music (roughly a minute in length) that depicts motion. Right now, apart from having a fairly full texture and a moving chord progression in the string section, i'm completely stumped for ideas. Any got any ideas?

Hey, so I'm not entirely certain how to compose, this is my first attempt at doing something using only instruments (no effects etc). I really want to start learning, but I'm not entirely sure which direction to go from here. Any advice, critique, anecdote etc is welcome of course. It's some fairly simple few bars so far.

Think rhythmically as opposed to melodically or harmonically, start off with long rhythms an gradually shorten them up. Use interesting subdivisions, then superimposed others over them. Whenever you do something, think hard about what it is going to achieve.
As for the timbres present, I wouldn't be using a string section. I'd uses instruments with strong attack and quick decay. Or if I was forced to use a string section, I'd still to pizzicato and use arco for only certain parts.

I found that just picking up the guitar and playing was the best way for me to create. Whether you call that practicing or noodling I just let my hands run when I pick it up and its just natural that eventually you hit something that sounds nice. Even if its just the way 2 chords interact once you find something you like then make a note of it (I highly recommend recording things like this and saving them in a folder). Then soon enough you end up having a lot of cool parts and can start connecting them.

Although noodling around does have its benefits, it won't make you a better composer. Truth.

I am working on a song that I'd like some feedback on, would it be better if I post the midi file or the actual powertab file?

The more formats you post the higher your chances of getting a response as each person has their own preference. Many people post a .rar or .zip folder with as many as 4-5 formats in it.
