holy shit its awesome its sooo fun i once recorded a 2-hour solo while baaaked and it was amazingg if fact i did that 20 minutes ago hehe
#5
Swear there was a thread about this like a few weeks ago....

Anyways. A drink or 2 helps, too much makes you shitty. As far as being high, it depends on the kind of weed (indica/sativa blend). It can be quite helpful though, until you want to remember something.

I can play the guitar very well after smoking a bowl or two. I come up with very creative riffs that i most likely wouldn't if i was sober. My friend and I always jam after blazing and we switch off one of us playing a simple riff while the other improvises a solo over it

EDIT: I suck at playing my guitar drunk and don't see how it could make anyone better

I don't drink, but I imagine that if I can bearly play without alcohol, my playing with it would be shite.
#9
When I used to smoke, I played high a few times. When I played by myself, it always turned into me playing like I was in slow motion on some big old stage. With a band, it went awesome.
#10
Every single party I attend.
Everyone says me and buddy sound good, but they're usually pretty far gone too...

I find that my skill level is roughly the same after drinking. Being high hurts it, but not by much. Actually, drinking helps me just a little bit in the fact that it loosens me up

I do have one funny instrument/intoxication story. I was at a get-together with friends, many of whom are musicians. One guy brought his banjo. He was out of the room, and people asked me to play it. I said "But I don't know how to play the banjo!" in a pseudo-distressed way (I really didn't know how to play it, but I was dramatizing my anxiety). After a little convincing, I picked it up and just started messing around. It actually sounded pretty good. According to my friends, I yelled "holy shit, I can play the banjo when I'm drunk!"

The following Monday I bought a banjo from a pawn shop.
He's a freak of nature, but we love him so.

Music isn't the Olympics. It's not about showing other people what you can do with a piece of wood in your hands that has strings on, it's about making sounds that are good.

I know my last hits & denies are amazingly accurate when I'm drunk. Or that might just be the guy I'm laning against. Guitar- nehhh

as far as i was concerned i was amazing. i have no idea how my playing really was but it was a lot of fun
#18
Usually pretty good buzzed on some alcohol. Not so well high but goddamn listening to music is incredible
#19
While drunk, it's not difficult. I do did a lot of things that require patience and concentration better while drunk, like drawing or rolling perfect cigarettes/artistic joints.
While high...only played an acoustic while on amphetamines and broke 3 strings, and as far as I remember my friend confiscated it before I broke anything else.
#20
I was watching some videos of some pros trippin' balls and playing and thought, "Is that helping or hurting their skills?"

Which is better for playing? Usually I just can't seem to get anything out after smokin. Isn't one like a bright green and the other is dark green?

I played "Electric Funeral" having consumed a flask of scotch in the middle of a party, playing a right-handed guitar upside down. I was headbanging and all that, it was like being on a roller-coaster, but it was awesome.
#23
I've tried playing a few times pissed - not pretty, I struggle to fret accurately and it's usually incomprehensible and shite!
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..



#24
No, I haven't But i always suck. First to take that option hahahaha.... but im learning, I've noticed when my brother gets drunk though he gets a little offbeat with his guitar and he is a pretty great guitarist. But I blaze all the time and play, It is way more fun.

Edit: You attempted it.

I have and I was alright. No noticeable difference in my playing.


I cant say the same for my behavior though.

Most of my life is spent under the influence and jamming so they're bound to coincide. I don't have any problems playing really except if I'm wasted I get sloppy and more technically demanding parts.

But if you all think playing drunk/high is difficult try doing it on acid. no comparison

If I have a couple of drinks it definitely makes me better on stage. I have played drunk at home when I had people over. Everyone was wasted and they asked my to play. I sucked arse but everyone thought I was sick.
#33
When I'm drunk, it sucks. My fingers get really numb and I can't feel the strings anymore (this is when I'm moderately drunk and can still control myself).

While high I've found that anything even moderately fast is really irritating for me. I'd usually just slowly bend or vibrato a note for forever and kinda drift into this meditative state or something, which feels really awsome, but I'm unable to create any riffs or licks.
#34
I'm a pretty good guitarist sober, but I've never tried playing drunk. I'm too afraid I'll drop my guitar or something

drunk, really counterproductive

high, there's lots of different drugs buuut

the leaf- jamming while stoned is fun as hell, but i get kinda lazy to write stuff down

ecstasy- forgot, but it was probably very jittery and impatient
#36
Bitch tits.

I'll give you what I posted in this thread last month:

Some drugs are better than others while playing guitar. Just my experience:

Stimulants: yes
Opiates: no problem
Benzos: some mistakes
Dissociatives: love the sounds but can't play fast
Deliriants: just no
Hallucinogens: depends

Yea I play while buzzed quite often. A long time ago I was playing my Epiphone SG special (had emgs put in it but that really doesn't matter for what I'm saying) got done playing and for some reason decided I would like to feel what it was like to smash a guitar but without actually smashing it against the ground. Anyways I lifted it above my head swung it and broke the light bulb out of my ceiling fan and chipped the paint on the inside of the guitar. But yea I've never ****ed one up unintentionally
#40
i play high all the time, only problyem is ill make a riff up and go thats awesome, play the shit out of it, and the next day not remember how i did it.

but yer, my playing is usually better when im stoned as shit, i have to be cautious though, coz usually the guitar comes out after a big night on the drink, and if i smoke also it sometimes makes me green out coz im trying so hard to concentrate.
