I was debating putting this here especially with all the masters here on this board!! lol smile.gif
If its stupid feel free to delete post.

I thought I may try to share something that maybe seem a bit silly but has helped me create my tunes and I find it pretty efective for me at least. This is probably mainly for metal players.

A good exercise I do is to think about how to pick some thing. Not really be in key with the notes. As long as you are humming it higher or lower.

I use the word "jump" - (Low) , "Jemp" (Med) and "Jimp" (high) tones.

Obviously this only work with basic songs but this is how I start to create my tunes.

Example of a song -

Jump, Jemp, Jemp, Jump, Jimp. x2 = Intro

Jump, Jump, Jump, Jemp
Jump, Jump, Jump, Jemp
Jump, Jump, Jump, Jemp
Jump, Jump, Jump, Jimp = Verse

Jimp, Jemp, Jimp, Jemp, Jump, Jump, Jump, Jump, Jump, jump, jump x2 = Chorus

and so on...By looking at this I created a template of a song by just using words.

The 4th word I use for lower tones would be...


Jump, Jomp, Jomp, Jump, Jomp, Jomp

For the fifth word I use. "JaDump"

That would be my slides into another chord...

Jump, Jump, JaDump, Jump, Jump, JaDump, Jump, Jump

Remember these phrases are place holders and not notes.
i.e - G, G, G--A, G, G, A--G

Hope this helps someone. It has helped me a few time to figure out what may come next in a song..

Good work

Any combination of words will help you when singing the melodies and composing.

It's a good way to help you out, you are using phonethics. The vowels of the different syllabels indicate inteterminate pitches and you can imagine diferent registers.
If that works for you it's a great way to create a method for a scheme of a song.
