I am just starting to attempt to write some music and I know there may be no right way to do this but maybe some opinions or ways you do it would help. I will be messing around trying to write some chords or riffs for a song (I try to write mostly rock) and I'll write say a cool riff. OK I'll have the riff but then it seems no matter what I can't get a set of chords or a tempo to go with the riff well...

Or I'll write a set of chords that will sound good together but then I won't be able to come up with a chorus or bridge that goes with the verse I wrote.
