This is from Brahms on composition which can be found at http://solomonsmusic.net/brahmrls.htm I found it to be a useful read. (You can click cancel if it asks you whether you want to run a script)When you examine a piece, read only the vocal line separately and or the bass separately, so this way you can see if your melody is dreary or your bass boring. The determining role of the melody and of clearly perceived basses created in good counterpoint should be a requirement.

Melody is easy for me and I can usually expand a melody and add chord etc. easily. However, most of my piece usually turn out rather simplistic and arpeggied (forgive spelling please). Does anyone have tips on how to write a good accompaniment? bass lines? 3rd and 4th voices?
