Trance melody writing can sometimes be very overwhelming and daunting. Which chord do I start with? What pattern should I use? What is my route note? How do I evolve this melody further? Is this melody boring? Does my progression resolve nicely?
This tutorial aims to answer all of those questions so that writing melodies can be much more fun for you with a way better outcome! Imagine being able to write good melodies in like 20 minutes?!
Melody writing used to be something I found quite difficult until I started to approach it in this very easy to understand way.
I never write melodies now in any other way, and I am now writing the best melodies I have ever wrote! This way of writing melodies really was a breakthrough for myself. They now have way more harmony, much better riffs and evolve nicely to keep the melody interesting without losing the hook.
Now its time for you to write exciting & better melodies! After all, the melody is probably the most important part of any Trance track!

Really good tutorial, never bought a tutorial before, and wasn't dissapointed, lots of advice and help with your leads learnt some new stuff aswell.
I purchased this tutorial after struggling to make original sounding melodies, and wanting to gain some structure rather than just aimlessley playing random notes and flicking through presets hoping something sticks.
I found a couple of the suggestions Allen gave as really eye opening, especially little simple things like not having to have the melody necessarily follow the bassline, and when to change things up over 8-16 bars slightly.
I loved the course so much that I've purchased the making a trance track from scratch bundle which Im hoping contains many more little elements I can use to change up my workflow.
I have been writing melodies for a long time, and in some ways knew parts of what was in this video. But the parts I did not know had a lot of aha! moments, and the video was clearly laid out and went at a pace that wasn't too fast or slow.
Would definitely recommend to anyone, beginner or otherwise.
