I could use some advise from an advanced musician (I am a guitar player, who could have guessed). I have reached a plateau, I am trying to write music, I will occasionally noodle around and hear something I like, write it down, move on.. It is not getting me anywhere currently, I don't know if it is a creativity stump, or if I need more music theory knowledge.
I practice my scales daily, but am having a hard time putting that to use. If this question is not direct enough I can revise, but I hope this makes sense.
