Re: The 3,5,7 Method

It's a divergence of ideas - a music theory thing that just creeps into all music because it's a simple technique to effectively create interesting(enough) melodies

I think it's related to Triad Inversions or just some arpeggio of a common chord that makes you think 3,5,7 is fancy, have you seen the movie: 23
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inversion_(music)

Don't just use 3,5,7
use Fibonacci, use Pi, Use a dice, Use your ears, measure your digit section lengths and use that

using a set rule for a creative exercise is counter-productive in my opinion
