Is there a better place to ask a question like that?
maaaaybe. i dunno what you mean by "missing the melody" though. all i can say is to try and emulate artists that you want to sound like at first and also reference other material for your mixing and songwriting like aaaall the time

How about where to find free sounds, like a banjo
google's seriously great haha!
though you should definitely check out ghosthack's "dubstep" sample packs (they're useful for lots of other stuff too)
also i didn't find any good banjo-1hit samples but there's lots of sample-able recordings if you want to try the cut/paste kinda style. apparently the "Indian DreamZ" plugin by DSK can do decent banjo-ey sounds with a bit of tweaking, too.
