Janek (and everyone else actually), This is a little vague, but would you care to explain the process you go through when you are inspired and you are ready to compose a new tune? do you just start playing around with a melody, then record it when you have an idea that you like. Do you then chart the chords that accompany the melody, etc. What is the general process that you use when you feel that you have a musical idea that you would like to turn into a tune? Ive been playing around with recording and my macbook, and the process is a little all over the place at the moment. More importantly, what do you do when you inevitably make a musical 'mistake' while you're recording? Do you just leave it there and use it for further ideas? I'd be interested to see how other TB'ers approach composing tunes as well.
