I'm recored into my smartphone. Surprisingly, many of my songs come whilst driving. It's soo easy to let a good hook, idea, etc slip away because you didn't record it. The other thing is I have a little solid state hand held recorder and if I pick up a guitar I turn it on whilst noodling around. Some of my best stuff just comes out of this. Somtimes I have to figure out how I played it.
I have entire songs in my head, some many years old that I still have not recorded, but I can recall them. Most don't have lryics but the structure, melody and rhythm is al there.
Finally, Band in a Box is an amazingly powerful creative tool. Throw some chord progressions up, try different styles over those chord progression and soon you are creating an entirely new song. The different players envolved each provide different elements that can shape the final result. One of the more intersting thing you can do is listen to some classical music chord progressions then have Band in a Box play the classic chord progression in the style of something like BLINK 182. That sets up the chord and rhythm, now start adding contrasting layers and often it sounds like >>>what the #@#%.....and sometimes it's pure magic.
