How come i find it easier to make music on piano(keys)

Yet I play guitar for 10 years and can hardly make a single decent tune.

With keys/stgins etc..can really make a nice backing for a song.

Then with some sythns lead make a quailty catchy melody.

10 years playing guitar never made anything decent lol...few days on keys and im making all kind of cool ideas

It is likely a visual aspect of the instrument and applied mathematics.

I think it might just be the snyhts and sustain.

You cant just strum a guitar chord and get all this amazing sound..unless u got efffects..but thats not really the main purpose of the guitar...maybe i just prefer to make electronic music not guitar music?

I'm the same exact way when it comes to guitar. I can map anything out with guitar way better than on keys. Probably just personal preference.

its not that its like i can play c-am-e-g on guitar 100000 times and always sounds the same.

I do same pattern on keys i can make 10000 differnt quality songs...on guitar i play the chords but never get any ideas.

Oh, my bad. Maybe a cool way out of it would be to experiment a lot with guitar effects (and the obvious, resampling yourself). Or you just dig synths more, in general.

well i done that in past but overall i wa sjust making electronic music using my guitar so its similar to using keys and syhtn.

But i find it easier to tap out random melodies on a piano that sound cool than create a melody on guitar..ive never created any singular note melody on guitar b ut i can make lots of interesting melodies on piano with ease.

But in general maybe i just dont desire to make guitar music as in verse/chorus/lyrics.

Ive always been more interested in sounds which is why i only really ever use my guitar to do soloing and lead play...

But for creating music i prefer electronic stuff...but for playing music cant beat bashing out some hendrix style solo

So yeh i can create aswome solos with random play and improvisation but i cant make a song eg..riff/chords/rhyhtmn...but on piano i can make decent riffs/motifs/songs

Re: How come i find it easier to make music on piano(keys)

You can easily stretch over more octaves with one or two hands on piano. It's easier for good sounds to pop out at you. Unless your a classical or flamenco player you don't get the same range just strumming chords or blues licks. In my experience.

Also a guitar has a bit more expressive things you can use like palm muting, harmonics, pick sweeps. Things like that might get in the way of focusing on coming up with something. Or you might just get caught up making noise. A basic piano or synth inspires a different more straight forward thinking.

Re: How come i find it easier to make music on piano(keys)

I tried to learn guitar a couple times and it never made sense to me...even took lessons...when I started learning theory on my own with a set of keys in front of me shit made way more sense...

I agree with Boretron. Even though Im terrible at math...

Yes but surely you can work within the basic 8 note structure the piano was visually designed around.
