Some of my favorite things I've written evolved using a combination of these two techniques. I would walk around campus in college humming a groove to myself, and then I would mess it up by imposing odd time signatures (usually changing every measure or two) onto my groove. I would then take that home, figure it out on keys or guitar, and build a song around the groove. Very satisfying.
Thanks! I needed to be reminded to think this way.
