>>88904109Same bro, I just gave up recently. If it hasn't happened after 5 years then it's not going to happen at all
>>88904253LOL. Tell yourself that.
>>88904109Try going through an intense experience, whatever you're most sensitive to, put yourself through it and write about your feelings
>>88904109>pick up a bass>jam with a friend
Never give up!
>>88904109what instrument u play
>>88904468guitar and keyboard
>>88904661If you can play the keys you have the world at your fingertips. Any instrument really. You just need to look into VSTis that interest you from a tonal perspective. Look into kontakt sample libraries and see what kids of possibilities you have for sounds there and explore from there. Try to recreate songs you like by ear and you'll get some ideas along the way for sure.
>>88904109Idk what genre you play, but as a rapper I always think of lines in between that I write down. Eventually, I try to form the lines into a full text and make sense of it when I have enough.
>>88904109>come up with anything goodmaybe try not to make "something good". maybe just fuck around and try to make something you find fun or deeply personal without it trying to achieve anything
>>88904109Stop browsing imageboards.
Here try this progression Gmajor Eminor Gmajor Eminor Bminor Cmajor.
>>88904109I honestly think it's largely genetic. Some people just can, and some people just can't.
>>88904109I think most great songwriters have written 1000s of songs. Growing up they'd write 100 dogshit songs and 1 of them would be decent. And they're not too worried about it being perfect because if it sucks they can just throw it away.
>>88904109Study how songs work, explore, learn, reverse engineer the songs of others.
