I can't write music anymore
It's not that I'm not inspired, I just seem to have forgotten how to turn that inspiration into music.

Has this happened to any of you before, or does anyone have any advice?

I usually play bass when I can't write anything with a guitar. Maybe playing another instrument can help you come up with new stuff.

Don't force yourself to write anything, it'll sound rubbish. Listen to different music than you usually would.

Yeah, I often find it quite hard to write on guitar, mainly because I've gotten into certain habbits when trying to write on it. So I try on piano, and sometimes I come up with something good, and different to what I usually write.

Listen to Da Lemmings OnSombol. Phenominal band... they play quirky jazz licks and their songs are great for implementing into any style of music.

I believe on myspace they have it as DLO(Da Lemmings OnSombol).

Written just like that.
i*[∂/∂t]*Ψt = -[∇^2]/2*(Ψt) (unitless form)


Almost as convenient as Wikipedia, but infinitely more hipster, Dover.

watch a surrealist film, or some movie that doesnt have much dialog. then just kinda play along to whatever is going on in the movie. it helps you think in terms of what you want the music to inspire, instead of the actual mechanics of the notes. dont worry if it sounds like crap, its just good practice.

anyway, i suggest Eraserhead. it could be found for free on the internet if you were a man of means. im warning you, its weird and disturbing. dont say i didnt warn you.

I have no opinion on this matter.

im not one to write things straight from an event which occured in my life
i used to do that, it sounded try-hard and cliche
so what i do, is write whatever is floating around in my head
and then blending it into some form of story later

the film thing is great, ones with not much dialog, and ones with lots of drama, its even good to know wat is going to happen so you can apply different things like buildup and whatnot, just pretend you are making a soundtrack

EDIT: and make emotional
