I’m out of ideas! What do I do?!
Short answer and probably not the one you want: push yourself. Even if it sounds terrible, do it. Eventually, even if it takes hours, days, or weeks, something will click. It takes time and persistence.
Try listening to a new style and pushing yourself to learn it. That’s what I’ve done.
I get writers block all the time, but I always get out of it. I say just clear your mind, go on a bike ride, or something like that.
What doesn’t work for me is listening to other music. When I do that, I try to recreate the style and I always get frustrated and then get even more writers block.
To sum up, do something that isn’t music, and then you’ll be making music in no time! (Trust me )
Dang callin me out like that right after I responded
Of course though, this is what works for me. If this doesn’t work for you, then try to find out what has worked in the past and do that.
Haha! I didn’t even see yours until just now
We literally responded at the same time with opposite advice. But @Vepium it’s all subjective. I say try both ways and then some to get things flowing. Whatever works will end up being the thing tatted works… yeah
Also @Eswyn has the most completely legitimate point so definitely do that too
Try creating a track with something you usually don’t do first. If you usually do melody first, try drums first
If you usually sit, try standing. Try playing something live if you have a instrument.
Read a book
Anything inspire you other than music? Try that out. Remember it’s okay to take a break if you feel you need to! If you are in a creative rut you can always take the time to learn about music rather than create.
