…let’s just say that I’m having some “compositional issues” with my new material. For the first time in my life, it isn’t the melody that is being the pain in the ass, lead lines are coming out fine.
What is killing me right this moment is rhythm. RHYTHM. My songs are lacking chord structure, the meat and potatoes of the song. I’ve tried different progressions, different phrasing, but I can’t come up with anything that sounds …right.
Okay, songwriters of Tumblr, my question is simple. Where do I go from here? Where would YOU go from here? When songs just don’t feel like they are coming out how you would want them to, do you just scrap them, or do you carry on haplessly composing crap that you don’t feel good about?
If anyone wants, I can upload some snippets and show you what I mean.
…It’s pissing me off and making me hate my life :)
As always, please feel free to message me and let me know.
