I'm not super experienced when it comes to writing music but I've written a few songs here and there. When it comes to Djent however I have a hard time. I broke down and bought an 8-string and now I feel like I need to write a Djent song to justify buying an 8-string, and it's been slow going. One thing I started doing is setting a metronome some random place between 160 and 200bpm and just jamming out until something good comes out. That helped but only got me so far. When I listen to a really good djent riff it just sounds like controlled randomness...if that makes any sense. I guess my problem is when I hear a riff in my head I don't hear it in like 16th note subdivisions and weird time signatures lol. That was a really long way to say, how do you Djent??
