i was just screwing around and came up with this weird chromatic thing and i can't really think of a way to lead it into like a normal sounding song-part. here's the tab:

------0h5-----0--------0h6-----0h6--
-0h6-----0h6-----0h7-----0h7-------
------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------

and it just repeats a few times. can anybody give me some advice on where to go from here?

Write more? We can't write your songs for you, unfortunately.

I'd go into a Coheed-style riff and just kinda mess around with lower notes, then lead into power chords for a verse.

haha that was pretty sick, what were the chords the rhythm guitar and piano played?
#10
so in the first distorted part, (to the rhythm, it's just power chords)

F#, F# F# F# F E, D D D D D# E, B B B B B G, E E E E E F
(repeat)
"Verse Chords" (piano/clean guitar)
every 2 beats
Bm11, D, G6, F#aug7
Bm11, D, G6, F#aug

the full chord sequence goes
Bm11, Em7 D, Em G6, Am F#aug7, Edim(add b9) Dadd9
Bm11, Em7 D, Em G6, Am F#aug, Edimadd11(b9) Gsus2

As you can probably tell, I had a lot of fun with the chords

so yeah.

well the best you'll hear in the near future is a video of me with an acoustic guitar haha i don't have any recording equipment or these fancy computer pograms u all use, i dont even have a band that'll show up every week lol

theres so friggin much you could do with that. my problem would be settling on what stuff to actually do. its basically a chromatic minor key piece, i'd probably start off by harmonizing some short line under it. i'd stick a C# in that line because it has a good tonality with the E5, F & F# diads.

Well it's essentially Dm to Ebm ascending minor triads, I might make the next to Eb then Eb+ and the to Abmaj7 or something of the sort.
