I like what everyone's saying about transcribing the music in their head, I'd say I've gotten reasonably good at that though. What kills me is not being able to recreate the sounds in my head.I know, there are so many musicians out there who don't know any theory,blah blah blah. But really, this is where theory and ear training are REALLY helpful. I'm still far from where I'd like to be, but studying harmony has made it a lot easier to know what is going on in my head and get it out to where other people can hear it.
I have very little theory.. mostly know note values, time signatures, some terms regarding how music should be played, 3rd, 5th, 7th harmonies etc.. but no scales. I gotta say.. learning the scales would be a tremendous help when writing. Though - I do agree with AxTekk. I can fairly easily transcribe what I hear into a tabbing program (based on guitar) and then work from there into what ever instrument.. but sometimes I hear a certain effect and am just not sure of how best to accomplish it. Just takes practice!
