Hey, so every now and then a riff or melody that i really like pops into my head. i can hear it perfectly in my head, and it sounds awesome, but when i pick up my guitar and try to figure out how to go about trying to play it, i just dont know what to do or where to start.

Any tips?

I'm cool because I have lyrics in my sig.

You can call me Rob.

Hum it out, record it down, then transcribe it.

Oh I'm sorry. This is the Pit, isn't it? Get a Jew's harp. That'll solve all your problems.
