you have made up a really lush riff that you have just been playing all ****ing day, then you take a break for an hour and you forget the dam rhythm...i wish i had recording stuff im so annoyed cause i wrote this really nice piano piece to this bass line i made up the other week and grrr its just completely gone.

does this ever happen to you?

All the time. I come up with a great riff and forget how it goes.

Hell yes, I had an awesome little riff called bert once. He died. In my mind.


But seriously, most of the time my bands riffs are down to the lead guitarist, because he writes awesome thrashy stuff and no-one can ever get their heads around mine.

yea, it happens. i just resolve to believe that if a riff is really good, then i'll remember it.

but that's really just to make myself feel better.
This is my signature. There are many like it but this one is MINE.

Thats why I record myself when I'm just messing around, in the past I used to forget riffs, melodies etc all the time.

Imagining the look on your face when you did that is priceless.

sometimes ill come up with kick ass riffs in my head but i never can transfer it from my mind to the guitar..its like i hear the riff in my head but i try to play it an i cant think of what chords to play
#29
It used to happen to sometimes. Usually I have no problem remembering riffs, but sometimes it just happened unfortunately.
Now I just use Guitar Pro when I write a nice piece. Then I don't have any problem. And if I am not anywhere with close access to Guitar Pro, then I play it and record it on my phone.
Simple, and effective.
