Subject: How to improve at writing melodies?
I've tried over and over again on writing melodies and I just can't seem to ever be as good as the pros. I typically make hip-hop/ trap beats so I try to go for a more dark/intense vibe. How can I write melodies that feel more professional and give it a catchy feel. I don't feel that modern day rap producers such as Southside use chords that much so I try to make melodies with no chord progressions. Im not sure how many of you are into future type beats but thats really what Im aiming for. Thanks to everyone for the help and hope to grt some great answers!

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
