So I, like all of you, LOVE playing guitar. And music in general. I play drums, I play guitar, I play bass, all kind of in that order. I've been playing for close to 10 years now. I've gotten good enough that I can play most of the music that I listen to, and that really, really feeds the thirst to MAKE something. in 10 years, I have not written a single song, and not for lack of trying. I just suck at that. I'm an uncreative little shit, what can I say. I guess it doesn't help that I don't know a lick of theory. So now my question is those of you that DO create music, that write and compose, HOW do you do it? What is your process? Do you just jam and if you happen to jam out a riff that you like, you write it down or record it for later? Do you program yourself a drum loop and just riff over that until you get something and then refine it? Do you create a lot of pieces, and then stitch them together into something cohesive, or do you sit down and write with a plan of where you want to go? How do you stop yourself from falling into a rut and writing the same parts over and over? What do you do!??! Maybe changing my process can get me to where I want to go. What works for you guys?
