Is anyone good at playing while high? I've tried, and it was awful.

I'm more creative when I'm high...and yea I tend to concentrate a lot more too which makes me have less mistakes. Plus everything sounds a LOT better so it's a lot of fun.

Everytime I try and get high I get nothing. On my first time, I did 2 big spliffs in the night and felt nothing..Then 2 big spliffs the following day and still nothing.. So I wouldn't know about playing high.

It's fun, regardless of how good you are or not.

Haha i get it such a zone when i smoke and then play, i actually play a lot better, but tend to repeat things over and over again... And dandadog, the same thing happened to me when i started smoking it took 2 or 3 different times for me to get high. Try using a bowl or another kind of piece.
#15
I actually seem to do better with my technique when under the effects of a good sativa. I feel more relaxed and play a bit cleaner (I record all my practice sessions and it's pretty obvous on the recordings). I also seeem to come up with more riffs. They are not all good mind you, but it seems my creative side comes out more.

Beer is fine.

I definately come up with weirder stuff when I'm stoned, dunno about my playing being any better though. The only time I've noticed I was playing better (and a lot weirder) was on an acid come down after a pretty long bad trip

when i would smoke and play i would just try random things. usually my friends thought i sounded better because all the notes just kind of flowed together. lots of slow flowing chords and picking, really relaxing stuff. I never could recreate it sober thuogh

can't play for **** when i'm drunk

Been there and done that. It might sound great to you but it really shouldn't be for public consumption. I had a mat I used to jam with at parties. He was best after a couple of spliffs which made things a bit odd when we played two guitar stuff.
Oh and a two hour version of Wooden Ships is NOT entertaining.
Playing on pills is a real nono. Far worse than on smoke. But the guitar makes some nice colours, man.

Really? How do you figure? I believe in the mindset that you try things once or twice and if you don't like it, you don't do it again...

pfft... If you have to get high to enjoy your playing it's not worth it. Never have, never will, I've got better things to do.


This is what I'm talking about. This is ignorant. Why do you assume that anyone has to be high to enjoy playing guitar ?

Your THC recievers (receptors) isn't developed yet. Or you smoke oregano.

Playing high is the bomb.

Yeah pretty much whenever I'm high at my house I hit the guitar (or drums). It sounds cooler, I'm more creative, and it's a damn good time.

But if I'm like wiiiiiicked stoned, my playing sucks. Gotta hit the sweet spot.

Well I didn't mean it about every time you play guitar, I meant that if you need to smoke a little to make it better than it already is, there's basically no point to that.

No point? What about writing better and more creative music? Some people do in fact get more creative when high. If you think that's wrong then so be it, but I don't see how writing good music can possibly be a bad thing.

If its a crazy body high then no.

Otherwise I love it, waaay more creative
