Re: Cant come up with new melodies

At what point in your process do you usually come up with the melody? Have you tried just noodling around on the keys? Do you think perhaps you are trying to genre too hard?--I find for myself that when I start by saying "I'm going to write a deep house track" (or whatever) it turns out bland.

I know it sounds like some zen bullshit, but I'm a much bigger fan of letting the track write itself. When I want a certain result genre wise I find it much better to just sit down and get a solid idea out melody/harmony wise with out any of the genre tropes present to force the song a certain direction. If that makes sense at all.
