What do you do when

Post by cmreal04 » Sun Dec 28, 2014 9:07 pm

You get the majority of your beat finished, then hit the wall!

I started in the opposite direction then I typically would: laid down a solid bass line, some nice drums, and then stared at my computer screen with no melody coming to mind...nothin, even got some lyrics inspired by the bass line but no melody :x

Try jam it out. Make an arrangement. Could trigger new ideas perhaps.
