Hi guys n gals, i've been trying to write songs for a while now but often when i try to write them i find parts don't flow together and many of my melodies sound out of place next to one another. So I'm wondering if anyone knows whether i just need to practice more or if theres a specific way to avoid this pitfall? Cheers.
Keep it all in the same key and at the same tempo, until you get more experienced with modulations and tempo changes. Keep a metronome on while playing. You have to start with simple (I-V-IV) progressions and then move to more complex stuff.
