the melodies I hear come from the heart, whether they're dark or happy. But like Jeries said, when it comes to trying to pull them out its just brain work. Once it's out there, then the "heart" playing kicks in again and then it usually turns out fun to jam or solo on. I guess that's the basis of making a song, finding something fun from the heart, physically playing it until its easy enought to play it from the heart. Wow, that's confusing
i don't think i've ever played from the heart...
it always come from the mind
the hands the fingers- just do the brains work
i don't solo from scale boxes
it all comes from my head- and i execute it with hands/fingers
i just try to play what is in my head... like my hands are trying to get out whats stuck in there
