I'm not sure if this in the right section, or if it's even a subject I should bother touching upon. Obviously I'm not gonna ask what the formula or something is for making good bass lines or anything, but... My problem is this: When I sit down and tell myself "Lets make something right now that I'll like and sound good" I can do it for the most part, but I find myself returning to the same rhythm or combination of notes that I always do and it's begun to frustrate me that I'm limited to such things. So, I was wondering if this is a block that everyone has, or I'm just musically disinclined to the point where I'm not diverse in sound or creativity. I know that's harsh to say, but I'm concerned that I have like... 3 tricks to play when creating a new song or whatever and that's all that's in the bag. I'm hoping in time (since I'm fairly new, but taking lessons) that I'll adapt and broaden my creative ability, but is there any insight or helpful hints that could be suggested? Anyway, thanks for reading this all and I hope there's someone that can relate/ help me out. Thx!!
