Sometimes the idea comes from the melody, sometimes from the chord progression, another time from the groove. It's good to have a simple recording devices to just record my humming when the idea comes.
Sometimes it takes me just an hour, but sometimes weeks...or even...I don't know how long to put things together into a nice composition.
Passion is the key, it's like taking time & giving heart to put different colors together to make a beautiful artistic harmony.
All my original tunes are all registered to COMPASS (Composers and Authors of Singapore).
