Creation Ideas

KoRn-FrEaK-15

So here's what this thread is about.

You're playing your guitar and you accidentally hit the wrong note, making a whole new image in your mind. you think "Woah...that could be a song that i make up and it actually sounds good..." so what do we do when we get these thoughts? we try to make up solos, rifts, all that good stuff...but the ONLY thing that comes to mind for some people (Meaning me also) is just that same beginning... so how crappy right?

WRONG!

this thread is for US. we share our excluded ideas.

Say i have something that sounds good, and i want to put a solo in it...but i dont have one, so i talk to another group member saying "well hey man, i've got this, but i need this to make it 1 more percent complete... have anything?" and they say "yea, try playing this solo at the beginning, it should sound great!"

But what if it doesnt sound good? no problem! we go onto another member (Making sure to thank the member you already talked to though, we dont want to be an ass do we?) so you ask the same stuff.

Twenty minutes later, you FINALLY have that piece of your song that makes it sound so great.

Im truly hoping that i can get this group up and running and have plenty of people in here with me learning and giving ideas.

Lets try this stuff out!

when making a song, especially when creating solos
i think it out and imagine what i want it to sound like
and then you look for the right note on your fretboard and play what it should sound like when you first thought of it

this takes a lot of ear-traning lessons so you gotta be patient and not give up!
sooner or later, you'll have what you're looking for!
