This is what happens:
I come up with a chord progression Im happy with.
Then I try coming up with a melody over it using a some notes from a major scale or a pentatonic scale in the key that I think fits the progression.

doesnt sound right.

I try to come up with a melody using the root notes from the chords, sounds mundane.

Even harder is when I come up with a melody then try to come up with a chord progression.

I feel stuck, if anyone can help, Id really appreciate it. thanks

Are you sticking to standard chords or are you open to more exotic chords (dims augs slash etc)?

Also, what kinds of rhythms are you using? Standard 1, 1-2, 1-2-3?

Learn the specific notes in the scales you are playing to come up up with chord progressions to melodies...
