Ok i'll put a few together and see if i can record it. Hopefully i'll be able to do that at some point this week. I'll upload the tab as well when it's done.

As for explaining how i try to write stuff, well first of all its really about deciding what kind of mood i want. From there i usually try and hear stuff in my head (which fails 99% of the time). Then i just play whatever, maybe stuff similar to what i already know. I might start with power chords and from there expand into other stuff. At this stage i'm not thinking about scales or keys or anything just literally playing random stuff.

When i start to find something, then i start to think about scales and keys so that i can lead off of it or onto it. Also i forgot to mention tuning, depending on the tuning gets me into a different way of thinking of riffs. Drums and Bass don't come into writing at all it's all guitar to begin with until i then have something i like. But of course sooner or later it gets thrown away as i don't ever see it as good enough.

I'm not really sure how else i can explain maybe if there's something you want to know ask me? I'd like to be able to hear riffs in my head and play them but i don't have the imagination i don't think. Well sometimes i do, but only when i'm not holding the guitar

That's cool. Bass is most of the time, just the rootnotes of what the guitarist plays! And then it's not too hard to expand that, for a simple but cool bassline.

Don't just play it. Feel it!
