    Great video. You said to develop a melody database. It sounds easy but actually doing it is difficult. I’m able to imitate pretty well but as soon as I need to sing my own riffs or runs it sounds childish, and quite often false. Any advice?

  4. PaulMckayONEvoice

    Be patient and persistent! If you criticize yourself too much you’ll lose motivation;
    why would you use a word like “false” to describe your riff? Any sequence of notes that you string together can be a riff.

  5. Thanks this is really helpful, I have a problem on deciding where to put the riffs in a song , is it in the end of a phrase , it would be really good if you could make a video about it

  6. My first time watching you and excuse the Ebonics but… You is some kind of good!!! I’ll be watching you from now on : )

  7. i just learnt learnt that blues riff you sang at 3.05 mins. took a while but i got it in the end 😀 good man paul!

  8. From experience I would say start off by imitating others because at least then you’ve got some influence. That’s how I started, then I’d say write your own song with the basic melody first, or you might even find yourself subconciously riffing while you’re writing…I do, but even if you don’t, once you’re familiar with your song, if you’re anything like me, you’ll start to want to explore some riffing possibilities. Hope this helps. 🙂

  9. do you have any tips for improving the ‘bounce’ between notes to get them to separate better? i do it sometimes but i’m not sure what’s happening or how to make it more consistent… thanks!

  10. Wow I never looked at what I do naturally so technically, great tutorial…will implement these principles into my practices

    Great lesson! Definitely subbing! I can sing, but doing runs is my last hurdle, I can come up with them, but sounding fluent is another story. I never understood the blues scale stuff until a week ago, so thanks for this additional information!
