Good question smile.gif

Before I used to write tabs of my ideas in Guitar Pro and that was probably the best approach. Nowadays I'm a bit more lazy and I just record myself playing it in Guitar Rig and rely on that. If there's no computer nearby, I write the tab down on paper. When there's no guitar nor computer and I have a melody in my head, I take my cell phone and humm it to my recorder biggrin.gif

Interesting and very practical question: during my workout Sonar is open all the time, so every idea that sounds interesting can be captured instantly !

I used to write riffs down in tabs but I couldn't allways remember the tempo wink.gif
Now I record ideas in iPhone or just create reaper file.

I have an iPhone app and little plug so it's easy to record a little melody when I'm on the road or just don't have an access to my studio

I'm doing the same.

I used to record my ideas with metronome. But that meant, setting up the tempo, click and stuff

Nowadays I record with no metronome and I try to stay in time. It's more spontaneous, and afterwards, I re-record the ideas I like with the metronome.

Usually record it in audio on my iPod via Evernote software so that I have the recording available on all platforms. If I have more time, I use the DAW .

It's curious to discover that recording is replacing music notation... at least for composing. (and for us)

I record them as quickly as possible. But since I just discovered some old ideas I had forgotten about and had to figure the licks out again by ear I will write things down from now on as well wink.gif

I'll record it on my iPhone. Prior to that, I purchased a digital voice-recorder and have a special project in Cubase I use to import all the ideas onto tracks so I can revisit them later. Problem I have is I have so many of them, everything from lyrics, licks, chord progressions, intro ideas, etc. that hunting them down later is often a problem. I'll sometimes get side tracked when searching for an idea with something I had put down a year prior and never get to what I was looking for biggrin.gif

As for lyrics - I always keep a notepad nearby. I've filled a few with song lyrics over the years -one day I'll actually finish a song!
