When I write riffs I’m rarely happy ‘cus it sounds totally unoriginal to me. Did you ever feel like this back when you started writing? Any insight into writing for a riff noob? cheers! Matt Hardcastle
It’s hard being original today and I don’t consider myself or my songs being original at all. BUT with that said I have a clear goal of what I like and how my band should sound. And with that focus it might look like I’m original but it’s all a facade… LOL.
What I’m trying to say is don’t waste too much time trying to make everything you do sound original, try to have more fun instead! Just keep letting your favorite bands inspire you and eventually you’ll get your own sound.
