I really love writing my own music, as I'm sure most of you do. But recently, I have found that I have run into the proverbial "brick wall". So, I was wondering if you guys could help me. What do you use for inspiration? How do you pick yourself out of ruts?

Listen to classical music.

Can always put out a nice riff or so from Classical songs.

Think about what you really care about. You should be able to come up with something. Take it like a psychologist visit. Naybe go to one and record it.

Get pissed off @ something/someone.

I mean REALLY pissed not just "you suck, man"-pissed-off. You'll come up with some crazy riffs..

Take some tylenol pm (like 4) and fight the sleep.
Or large quantities of cough syrup, and just stay awake as long as you can with your guitar at hand.

Or watch some profound movie or read a book.

I'm dead serious too. I know for a fact that's how Kurt Cobain made all those bizarre popular lyrics. He'd down a bottle or two of cough syrup every night.

I do it all the time, gotta be perfectly honest, totally works. Best stuff comes about 10 minutes before i pass out. Make sure you don't have anywhere to be the next day.

Listen to music you heard when you first started, that's what I do and works most of the time.
