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!
