  1. When I was 16, I first discovered fruity loops, and I was completely enamored by the music writing process. Sure I didn't know anything about theory or what made a good song, but I threw myself into it full force, writing as many bad songs as I pleased. And now I'm 22, and I'm writing less and less full songs. I'll find myself wanting to write something and having no ideas, or having an idea but no way to continue it. I've been going to college for music now for a few years, and I don't know anything else I'd want to do with my life. I want to re-ignite my drive for music, I started playing guitar but I don't know if that'll help. Anyone else ever been in that spot before?
  2. I'm struggling to write music lately, and I think it's because I'm afraid that I'll write something bad. I wanted to be a composer as my career choice but thinking about how I need to be really good to make it as a composer, I'm scared I'll never be that good, that it's a fruitless dream and I can never achieve it. How ow do you get over that fear?
  3. I'm trying to work on a Trance remix of Metalman's theme from Megaman 2, but this is all I have so far. I'm hoping for some insight on what could possibly be done next or even some critique. https://www.dropbox.com/s/s1at8b1xwjx2z4i/TranceBass1.mp3?dl=0
  4. Sorry for constantly bumping this thread. Been writing every day now, just scraps, and nothing progresses past 20 seconds. But I'm enjoying myself at least.
  5. I messed around and I didn't come up with anything good. I'll try again tomorrow
  6. Haven't been able to write anything in a while. I'm fresh out of ideas when ever I try to write, I kinda sound needy here but maybe someone can give me a song they want to hear remixed and I'll try something? Idk.
  7. I kinda feel a bit overwhelmed trying to remix something by listening to the original piece of music, like, i can't really think of anything that I can do to do to the track. And the tracks are all so well made and I just don't know what the fuck I'm doing
  8. Sorry for constantly posting, but, I really am not getting any good ideas. Should I just force myself to write anyways? I can always try and remix something.
  9. If I started posting more of my shit music on here would anyone mind helping me to find out what is wrong and how I can improve it? I want to reach my maximum potential and I really like writing music and yeah.
  10. My music professor offered to give me private lessons so I'm taking him up on that offer, but other than that I really feel like there's just a vast ocean of information I need to go through and I really just don't know where to start. I'm still having fun writing music which is the most important thing though.
  11. I've started going over musictheory.net again, as well as taking some free courses on course.ea and the berkley website, is there anything else I should do?
  12. I've been writing music since I was 16, I'm currently a music major in college and yet for the past year or so my music output has been middling at best. I don't know what exactly it is I'm missing. Is my knowledge of music theory lacking? Am I just not inspired enough? Am I just terrible at writing music? Could I get some opinions by sharing my music? https://soundcloud.com/crazy-8-1
  13. I've been writing music since I was 16, to...middling results, I've never really made anything outstanding but I've always enjoyed doing it. Lately however I have no ideas what to write, and even worse I feel hardly inclined to even write anything. How do I fix this? I want to write again.
