Oh damnation, how to get over artist's block? Any suggestions?writers block doesn't exist. I can write songs one after the other. Why? Don't limit yourself. Listen to everything. Make everything.
This is how I get over righters block:
A lot of the time its really just a lack of inspiration. When this is the case its always great to literally just take a break and do other things that you enjoy. With this method, the real trick is to not let your self think about music too much. Eventually, you will be full of hidden surprises, you will just have to farm them.
This is method two, and can also be used right after method one. The method is where you literally just do it. What I mean by this is you stay in your DAW and play around. You could be paying with a melody, some chords, even just sfx. Eventually you will come up with on bar of sound. THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO GET STARTED! Just force your self to continue! If you just have one bar of melody, try to expand your chord progression. If you have some fancy chord, try to expand on that and make a bass to it.
In conclusion, just don't get stuck in a mental rut of, "I'm uninspired, I'm in a writers block, I don't know what to do." because you can do whatever you want when ever you want!
I hope this ether helps you out right now, or I hope you think this is stupid but then reflect on it later and it helps. I'm rooting for the later rather then the former.
