Does anyone have any suggestions on how i can get around this I've not been workin on this song for long but after the 64 bar acoustic intro i just can't seem to get anything good when the distortion kicks in. This would be the 5 song I've written with the current band. Its in C and is mainly using an augmented fifth scale. I think that may be the problem as its the first time we've written with a solid focus on that scale we will do a key change at one point but until then I'm stumped.......

Borrow notes from other scales occasionally, don't think that the scale is an absolute limit.

i have had this problem a lot and recieved a lot of advice on how to deal with it, a lot of people told me to leave it and come back to it later, and some people have said they like to work on a different song for a while to get a break, but i have found whenever this happens to me, even though its a bit extreme is to delete the section beforehand, because more often than not you can hit a musical dead end, and by deleting this bit it gives you a lot more freedom to take it in a direction you want to go, and if you really want to keep the section in, there will probably be an oppertunity to use it later.
hope this helps!

Both helps out alot thanks. I'd just removed the part that sounded weird and elongated the acoustic intro with a key change that seems to be helping and seeing hows its nearly 1am in Scotland just now I'll sleep on it.
