    My band are trying to write some of your own music, i know theres no set way to do this, but someone said you start with a bassline??
    Has anyone got any tips??

    (our style is kinda...Korn/Deftones feel if you can imagin?!?)
  2. There are loads of ways of doing it - I'm not sure that there is a right and wrong, but sometimes some ways are easier.

    Our band have written songs where the lyrics came first, the singer had a melody and we worked around that for the music. We've also had a cool riff, developed the riff and found lyrics that had already been written to suit it! We've also found a good riff by jamming (by accident) and then written lyrics to fit the tune.

    Sometimes the ones that sound good are the ones that have come together quickest - they just sorta gelled!!

    Try lots of ways, try to get everyone having a go at inputing something and see what happens. Above all else have fun! :D
  3. I can't help you there, it's been ages since I writt anything
