I am constantly trying to write music in many forms but i always get hung up on the thought of "am i stealing whats already been taken or can i just use this?".
For instance....this is a really cool bass line... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MlwEEaUZGU
I jam it out and then i want to use it...in recordings that i am working on. Is this a lawsuit waiting to happen if my music ever does get discovered?
How do most be go about not wanting to use what your learning? Its tricky... alot of gray area i guess.
