Hi Aris! Welcome back to the Army!

This thread is a follow up to this one. As you've asked by PM, we will focus on composition and technique.

Your favorite styles: punk rock, hardcore, grunge, garage - rock & Roll, garage-punk.


At first we will start building a 30' technique routine and analyize a few songs while I give you some basic theory knowledge that is important to start composing.

Could you please share 5 songs that you like a lot?

Well, I usually work on many songs at the some time so If I get stuck with one, I can try with another idea and then get back to it another day.

Talking about this idea, from what I hear, you are needing to move to any other chord. The whole idea is based on a riff that make everything sound very "root" based. You need to move to another place and make a memorable chorus, or that's what I would do.

And you'll ask... a memorable chorus? how??

Well, it's time to analyze Thrash Metal songs that has memorable choruses and see what's the relation ship between the root and the chords used there.... In some cases the composed uses a short bridge to generate tension and then the chorus starts from the root but moves using a more melodic friendly chord progression:




Here, they also start the chorus on root chord, but the progression starts moving:



the same here, but in this case, the verse is not so stable, it also moves...




Another example:





You can check out many other genres and that's how your compositions will become more original...

This is what I do when I can't continue a tune... Let me know your thoughts!

Thanks a lot Gabriel.
It felt very embarassing for me to come back to you with no new ideas.
It looks promising... The examples should help a lot too. I 'll check the variations and let you know what happens.
