Does Anyone Know How to Write a Melody?
 
My brother and I are producing an album together and it looks pretty good. I do vocals and write lyrics, he takes care of most of the instrumentation; it's going well. The problem is that neither of us can write a good melody. Does anyone have any tips or anything?

You're not going to make it. Just give up.

Become a chartered accountant.

I don't think it looks as good and is going as well as you think

Well what have you tried so far? Maybe listen to a range of different sounds or start playing and see what fits?

"Hey, man, we've got a great band going, we've all got leather jackets and tons of coke and guitars we bought at a garage sale, too bad all our songs sound like 'Little Bunny Fifi'".

Learn all the scales and modes you can.
Learn as many chord progressions as you can.
Pick a key, find a chord progression you like, and as long you are picking notes that fall within that scale and notes are compatible with the chord your on, the melody practically writes itself.
