Maybe I can do that, yes
I've never learned that song before I must admit

I was with Guitarrero talking in the chat about Zakk´s farewell ballad solo and we wanted to ask you if you could make a video lesson of it!
it would be awesome!
That's a hard question. Usually the first step is messing around (riffing) on the guitar, and sometimes I improvise whole songs while practicing.
Sometimes if there is a melody in my head, I try to figure out what kind of chords can I play under that particular melody.
After I imagine the bass and the drums, and the song is almost complete.
That's my progress of writing a song briefly.
Thank you for the question...

Old topic, but I'd like to hear your take - how do YOU go about composing, then recording a song? Do you begin with a progression, then add a drum backing, then add lyrics as a complement to the song, or have a lyrical idea in mind, then come up with a progression and drums to complement the tune you have in mind? Or do you have another approach. I know every song generally comes about in a different way, but I'm curious how you approach / most common method for filling out your ideas in the creation of a song.
