Dear Abby of Bass; This is making me sick.....I hear a song/sound in my head and I never have the immediate means to record what I hear. - Sometimes, I hear a melody in a dream and have no means at my bedside to get it down when I awake. The tune only stays in my head for a couple of minutes before I lose it. - Sometimes, I hear something on TV, something as insipid as a sound clip from a commercial, and I immediately, unwillingly, make a song out of it in my head. But I'm not wired 24/7/365 to get the idea down that I hear. So, the "universal" questions are; > Does this happen to you??? > Have you figured out a means to get what you hear in your head down so you can develop them later???? I have no formal background in composition, only in reading music. Besides, the best tunes come into my head when I don't try to force them. Any observations/sharings of similar experiences are much appreciated.
