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?
problem is, this is not stuff you learn in a message. No one can write a short sentence that would make you all of a sudden write better arrangements. Composition and arrangement is a skill for musicians who are very well rounded in many aspects of music, just being able to play a few tunes does not a arranger makes. Sorry. Best bet is digging deeper.
