Do you have the Song first or does your instrument dictate the Song/Tune?

What I'm asking, is that do you have a song/tune in mind first (regardless of the lyrics), then look for the instruments to create it? (ie. your vision).


You have the instruments first, then play some random tunes and sounds, then create a song out of it?

For me at the moment, I play random things, and depending on the "sound" I get, then I'll go in a direction which becomes a song. That is, the sound absolutely influences the song. Then the lyrics will come later.

To qualify what I mean: Tune means a series notes becoming a song. Sound means what I hear off the instrument: a guitar or synth etc - regardless of ITB or OTB.

Please discuss.
