I woke up this morning and I just felt tired of playing covers. I really wanted to start writing my own so I came up with a whole song this morning. I have all the chords written (typed) out above the lyrics, but now I'll need to figure out how to pick the melody out.
From what I've gathered from various places online I just look at the triad of what makes up each chord and pick it out from there. How many do I pick out per chord? My song is in 4/4 time (at least I think so...) It sounds like I just pick out what sounds good to the ear, right? I don't think I need to make it too complicated and delve super deep into theory for this...but maybe I do?
Are there any videos on Guitar Tricks about this? I searched and couldnt find anything.
Thanks in advance. I hope to sing and record the song soon....definitely not today as I recover from vaccine #2.
