Where does any idea come from?
Hey Rody, what's your usual methodology for writing choruses/vocal parts? I mean those catchy powerful parts like Spoils ending, Palms Read, Plato's T., Mist, Caravan, etc. Does harmony come first, then you make up melody/lyrics? Do you store any pre-composed melodies until you need them? Thanks.
You can't write harmonies before melody... I just figure it out as I go... there's no trick, it's just a simple trick! I don't really know how to describe the origin of an idea, I just listen and sing.
if i could make you fall in love with me would you release the mystery weekend record 3 days early
