Re: Cant come up with new melodies

Hey man, it's really not as hard as you'd think. If you have no inspiration coming from your head to work off , then start simple. For example you could start with an A as a bass note and an E or C as the first note of the melody. Add in some colour notes such as an F or a D (Since the bass note A has some relationship to F or D since A is the third in F MAJ and A is the fifth in D). No after the colour note you could move the melody note to B or G and the bass note to E . Since B or G make up E Min and E is the tonic note. Add variation to ryhtym and BAM! That usually kick starts some inspiration. Hope this helps ! Keep on trying
