Hey all, hope you guys had a merry time at this time of the year, if you celebrate it. Sorry if there are already posts about this, or if it is in the wrong place or my spelling/grammar is bad. Anyway... I have come up with a couple of, what I think, are good musical ideas (as in riffs) after my 9 or so months of playing. But what can I do with them? I don't want them to remain a riffs until I forget them... Usually, what I'll do is show one of my very good musical buddies my riffs and he helps to come up with the rest of the songs. But what I want to know is... What methods does one use develop a WHOLE song, and how do I maintain interest for the listener? Here's one of my ideas: https://soundcloud.com/the-riddle-1/jazzy-jingle I hope you enjoy it and if you have any extra ideas to add to it try and describe in the best detail. (Or I could just leave it as a jingle)! Thank you all very much. Sorry if it's not very clear, I'm a bit tired after Christmas you see.
