Recently I have been trying to make a remix for the song Revolution by Diplo. I have the acapella for it but every time that I try to make a melody for the song it just sounds off. Any tips for how to make a melody match a song? I'm fairly new to making music so I'm not great at melodies or listening to things and figuring out what note it is. My soundcloud is:
I don't know if that will help you to see how far along I am with learning to make music.
I also want people to know that I have tried studying music theory but it has never made much sense or had that much appeal.
