So I need help with writing a good melody. I've written melodies before but they weren't very good.

So are there are any good tips for writing an effective melody?

Humming the melody from your head and finding it on guitar.
It will probably work out more than messing with scales.

happy new yeeae guyas.
Find a couple of melodies you think sounds cool and use a couple of notes from them.

I've never been able to hum out a cool melody, ever. I actually just play simple single notes on my guitar, chromatically, untill I find something good. And I steal other melodies, ofcourse.

[U]       /|_     `-’       |      [/U]
[U]      //| \      |       |      [/U]
[U]     | \|_ |     |     .-|      [/U]
      *-|-*    (_)     `-’
I just mess around with arpeggios from open chords and add variations.

Sometimes the coolest things are a complete accident.
