I have sat down several times over the last month and I have 5 ideas, all different from each other. I just don't know how to extrapolate them into full songs. F***ing 4-bar-loop syndrome!
When I played in a band I used to come up with ideas all the time and the different band members would chip in and guide them into something useful and we'd make some great progressive music. I have just never been able to work on my own. I don't know if I'm being too critical or what. I do know that I have to practise finishing 'songs' to get good it and along the way there'll be a lot of shite, but at least it's practising the art of finishing a number! I am totally frustrated! :madas:
The only way I can escape this is to sit down and noodle away with the guitar and let the music form in a more organic manner rather that is being a more sort of lego-land construction. Or if not noodling away with the guitar, go to the piano and do the same sort of thing, go where the chords take you as opposed to going around and around in circles, well loops to be precise, now I know what they mean by going loopy!
