    Write riffs. Stitch riffs together. Write more riffs. Put some plinky plonky clean parts over the top. Get drummer to do his bit. Take into practice room. Everyone jams it out. Songs come.

    But are they good ones?
     Reason why I ask this, is because that's what Richie Blackmore did and told Ian Gillan to write words to the riffs.
     When Coverdale took over,  the band created music with the songs, not saying which is better, but to me the earlier stuff was great riffs like smoke on the water etc, but songs were much better written later on. 
    A song must be able to be stripped back and still work for me.
