I have hours upon hours of musical ideas, probably totalling in the thousands. The problem is they are just that: ideas - a single melody line, rhythm, or whatever. I rarely ever get past this point, and it's quite frustrating and really leaves me feeling unfulfilled. After 20 years or so, I only have a handful of completed songs to show for it.
I need to expound on these ideas, but I don't know where to go with them. Everything I try comes out sounding unnatural and forced.
I wonder if anyone else has this problem, and if you do, how do you overcome it?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
