How do you write punk melodies?

Begin with a simple, catchy chorus, as it’s an essential part of most pop punk. Pop songs, no matter the genre, need to hook the listener and get stuck in the brain. It should be easily remembered, a short, simply phrase with a hummable melody. Think of this as the 1-2 sentences that sum up your entire song theme.

Is Les Paul good for punk?

Other than that, there aren’t too many other features that sit with the Les Paul Junior – but it’s exactly that simplicity that makes it such a great guitar for punk rock.
