yes! that's what I mean. I feel that having an image on the structure of your first EP/album could be a good starting point.

Instrumental or with lyrics?

I think just instrumental, lyrics and vocals would be an entirely new skill to learn from scratch. I don't have the confidence, time or interest to pursue them right now.

No not really, that's where I start to stumble. Maybe a couple, but they're the kind of comfortable riffs you play over and over when you start noodling and aren't really staying focused on your practice. In all my years of playing, I've never succeeded in writing a complete song or even really stringing two parts together well. I riff, then layer and repeat and nothing goes anywhere further. I really want to develop this skill, but despite all the books and tutorials I absorb, I just can't get the ball rolling.

I don't want to derail this whole thread, just talking about myself, we can continue this in my mentor thread if you'd prefer. I really want to do this, I just need to be shown the way. I'd REALLY appreciate some guidance because this is where I want my guitar playing to lead.

I'm exactly the same Brian. I come up with a chord progression I like and don't know if the chords theoretically go together or not but I like them, then I don't know what to play over them.

Ok, I think that it's a good idea to continue there! I can definitely help you to complete your own songs. There are no secrets, there are effective methods and as everything, requires practice.
