Anyone who reads this, feel free to reply.

Lets get down to the gist, I want to write music. My influence is Chevelle. I want to write gut wrenching melodies, that go alongside beautiful melodies. I want to have some crazy nice chord progression that sounds awesome that you can just rock the **** out too. But, I don't know where, or how to start. The only reason I say this, is because I believe there is a science to it. But, I don't know where to begin learning this science. I also am stuck on what's really my voice, and what really isn't. Being able to sing all these songs in key is nice, but how am I to know that this is really my voice? It's really what I want to sing and play, but is it really what my vocals were meant to do? Or does that even matter? Do professionals just develop the weapon of the voice that they have? Am I over thinking everything? I don't know where to begin. Can someone help?

Chevelle?

Open tuning. Open chords, third fret, fifth fret, sixth fret. Rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat.

Also, wrong forum.
