comment How are phrases used in Rock music?
It's up to you whether you think that lick is a lead-in to the second chugging riff. I think there's a "breath" between the lick and the chug, which weakens the case for it being a lead-in.

Good advice from Tom Robinson - don't worry about writing good songs. Just write songs. Lots of them. Good songs will come with time.

I suspect this is too broad a question. But I think "How to write songs on guitar" by Rikky Rooksby is quite good.

comment Which Blues notes are deliberately flattened?
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_note - 3rd, 5th and 7th. When I'm feeling bluesy, the main thing I do "automatically" is to play thirds that are somewhere between major and minor third, by starting on the minor third and bending up. Wikipedia draws attention to the phenomenon of playing minor thirds over a major chord changes.

comment How to 'feel' note duration
@amalgamate McCartney claims he woke up with the melody in his head; frantically tested it on anyone he could find, to check he hadn't stolen someone else's melody; then they rehearsed with the stand-in lyrics ""Scrambled Eggs/Oh, my baby how I love your legs".
