> IS THAT YOUR MAMA?

Nope didn't think so either. We all know parents don't get this.

I can show you how to be the virtuoso your folks could only dream about, but I first need your help:

* Pm me and I will show you where to start. I am online every day and I will help you out directly!

* Join my mentoring program. I will customize your learning experience in a way you haven't experienced before. We will have regular contact so that you can remain inspired every day and eventually reach a new level.

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Oh and did you know that to become a killer guitarist you just need to focus on one thing? Everything
else is secondary. Pm me and I will explain.

As the tittle says I want to know your approach for creating vocal melodies. I'm following the advice you gave me and I'm creating my first album, at this moment I'm composing the lyrics and vocal melodies for 5 original songs I have.

The approach that I'm using is, I sit with a notebook, my guitar and the original song. I pick a topic or a story that I want to tell, and start creating melodies on the guitar while the song plays, while I'm playing I also start singing the melody with a couple of words and start writing them.

So that's my approach but I really want to know yours if it's possible of course, I really like the melodies of your songs.

Thanks a lot amigo.

I think that the most natural melodies are the ones that you naturally hum over a backing track or something. When I'm making melodic lines, I often loop a backing track and record myself humming (not guitar) different melodies for 20 minutes or so. Then I can review it at pick out good parts.

I think using your mind to compose gives you ultimate creative flexibility, because your mind is a completely unique 'instrument' from anyone else's. smile.gif

Great approach Taka - some sort of 'vocal jamming' right? smile.gif I place a part on the loop and sit back with my band mates and suddenly one of us starts humming something and then we jump quickly in front of the mic to record. If we realize that the line sucks, we go back to phase one laugh.gif

I think that each person has their own recipe to this and it would be cool to hear more opinions from other vocal line writers in here - anyone else?
