When do you write your best music?

Is there a common denominator between the best pieces you've written? Do you write your best music when you're happy? Or after you've exerted yourself all day and you're physically exhausted?

Or do you not know? (boring af)

Personally, I write my best music when I'm hopeful. WHAT ABOOT YOU GUISE!

in my head while at work or away from my guitar so I forget everything by the time I get back.



I like writing when it rains too.

Usually when I feel somewhat good about myself I think.

When I'm sad I usually feel like I can't do anything so that doesn't lead to a lot of good things being made. Even if what I do leans toward a more melancholy sound

I said hopeful, but it's more like inner conflict tinged with hope.

I don't write music. I just scare the instruments into writing the best they can

I don't really write music anymore. I write my best short stories after a long walk or on sleepless nights (although this might just be a self-fulfilling prophecy: I can't sleep for a little while so I try to write, get into writing and then pull an all-nighter to get all my ideas down.

Poems always seem to turn out best if written drunk and then reviewed sober.

I don't think so, no. They run the gamut

Mostly when I'm done reading or listening to something new. Other forms of media inspire me; also, my friends, my woman, and my ex-women.

After listening to a new awesome band/song usually. Or a band/song that I'm really into at the moment. It gives me inspiration.

Get back together again so she can break up with you again. That should give you 3-4 songs worth of material.

In all seriousness, subjectively speaking, I write whatever I'm writing best when I'm feeling at my lowest. Maybe it's because my own personal expectations are so low that nothing could be as bad as I expected.

I write my best music years ago. Best music I never composed since, because compose I never do. Lyrics ain't my thing at all, so having a good tune doesn't go anywhere.
