Any tips to writing in 4/4? laugh.gif

My drummer keeps asking me to come up with something that's in 4/4, but it's not the way I write. Of course I CAN do it, but the way I do is just to come up with a riff I think sounds nice and then figure out the time signature.

hahaha! It should be easier to write in 4/4 than other meters! laugh.gif

The key is listening to 4/4 music. Are there any bands that play the style that you like but that use more 4/4?

I remember some progressive metal pionners like Queensryche, and Fates Warning using more 4/4 than other meters, and DT also has many song in that meter.

Well, I can sit down and make riffs fit into 4/4, but the problem more so was that my drummer played a groove and I had to come up with something on top of that. That's difficult for me, especially to then keep it in 4/4.

Nice! That's a cool homework! I would basically jam over it trying different rhythms, and scales. It's a good exercise. Have you tried improvising riffs over it?
