Composing
« on: February 17, 2013, 12:11:13 PM »
I hope I'm posting in the right section, but if I'm not, I'm sorry.
I really really really want to try composing my own ocarina songs. I can do some Zelda songs, and I'm teaching myself Always With Me from Spirited Away. But I want to try making my own songs.
I've already heard tips like 'learn music appreciation' and I'm working on that. But I could really use more then that to figure out how to start.
Any tips?

If you go to the library (or check your tablet/e-reader if you have one), there's a ton of books about music theory and the like. Pick up one about composing melodies (:

Other than that, you don't have to follow any specific formula to come up with your own song; experiment! (:
