Default cont.

IMO the melody of the song should come from your imagination. you use the theory to construct the music around the melody. However, I'm sure many songs especially metal or hard rock start with a guitar riff and then the lyrics come second. so I guess it all depends, if you can't come up with a melody out of your imagination you may be able to find one tinkering around with a scale on your instrument of choice.
