Hi Guys,

After a string of successful gigs, i felt all creative and decided i wanted to get started on some new material for my band
However i ran into my old faithful problem after i came up with a successful rift...bridging it into the next part of the song!

I have always had trouble progressing when writing. i find changes in rhythm off putting, and it doest feel like it flows. Of course once a drum beat is behind it, keeping time or through sheer per-subservience i eventually get past this block, so most of it is in my own head.

I was just wonder, what difficulties others face when writing, how you get over them?

Great topic mate! My new Vchat series ares based on composition. We choose a band, analyze it and then compose a song inspired on them. You should check it every Friday at 20 hs.

What style do you want to compose?

Hey mate smile.gif i ve been learning alot of sacred mothers tongue recently, (andy james)
I can come up with lots of rifts, but making them fit in a song together just seems to be a problem

The style of play is metalcore/thrash smile.gif

This is the first song i ve written in a good 2-3 years

Pretty much if i change up the rthyme, say im pedal toning a rift with some nice licks for the verse, then move into the pre-chorus and want to change up to a nice chug etc, it feels very un-natural (which sounds very odd..)

I think once the drums are behind it, it would work, and im just too much in my own head.

Cool, cheers mate, i'll see if i can catch one smile.gif
