I want to learn how to compose my own music, for just like 3 or 4 instruments. I have drums, a bass, and a guitar, I was thinking about getting a piano. The reason I need to learn how to compose, is because I want to learn how to write my own music. I'd prefer not having to learn how to write music, I know a little music theory though. I just want to have something to work with, so I can get some idea of how I can basically lay down my ideas. I want to be able to cohesively lay them out, because I have good ideas, but I can't seem to organize them.

okay, I know this sounded like a contradiction, but what I mean is, I want to write music as in make it and compose it, but I don't want to have to literally write it down on paper.

Music notation is for organising ideas, so you'll have to either learn to write stuff down in your own way or learn musical notation. if you try to keep everything in your head you'll forget all your good ideas.

As for the process of composing, start by decomposing and recomposing a song - listen to something simple enough to get and try to lay out the track for each instrument, that works

what do you mean by this?

Listen to a simple song and try to play it by ear. Listen and isolate the drums, then play the drums yourself. Rinse and repeat with each instrument. Now delete you cancer thread, this could have been solved with a google search. The best way to learn to write music is to fucking start writing music. You're just looking for excuses to postpone your failure, pick up your fucking instrument and get off /mu/.
