So, Im at my aunts right now and ive been drinking. Theres this song that ive been trying to play for a day now, and just awhile ago I played it perfectly, to my own amazement. I found myself more able to follow the rhythm that I typically have. the song is the killer inside by bte. Anyway, I was just shocked to find that I could play it so well almost all of a sudden. Other songs ive been practicing lately also came out the same way. I played Never too late (3dg) the ocean (zeppelin) and adams song (blink 182) perfectly.
And I dont think that I played perfectly because im so drunk, it just sounds so perfect. i was just a little tipsy after a few shots of vodka. and its like... I felt the rhythm a lot more.
Either, way... quite interesting.

it could be you're more relaxed when drunk, and put less pressure on yourself to get the parts right.

There's a clip of my band playing a song, when i was absolutely wrecked on stage , i'm surprised i managed it tbh. At the time i pulled the guitar right out the case , didnt bother tuning or any of that, and decided to give it a go.

The song is basically one chord, and the A string is ringing the whole time. It was about half a semitone out the entire thing. xD I still quite like the performance though, so i think i got away with it, i don't play better drunk though, but i can apparently pull it off without anything going wrong too much.

I'll find the video if i can and post it

edit: this link should work, http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10150403684394290

I think i got away with it

It's definitely this if you're legitimately better. When you're inebriated, you're much more relaxed and therefore less likely to subconsciously think about what you're doing.

I drink before every gig. Not cos I feel it makes me better, just loosens me up a bit.

yea thats kinda how it is for me. Its like, right now my life is in almost complete chaos (unemployment, not in school, etc) and its like, when i usually practice I just cant stop thinking about all the bs in my life. and tonights like the first time ive been drunk since college (which i dropped out of almost a year ago now) and i havent been thinking as much about my life. and its almost like, i devoloped more of a focused mental picture of the fretboard with my fingers

You know how people say that if you can't find a good hookup, a few drinks and you'll be in a bar of models? Or words to that effect?

Same sort of thing. Only instead of subpar sexual partners turning into sex gods, poor playing turns into beautiful chops.

You only think you sound good.

I play pretty well high, I don't drink but it didn't affect my playing, ecstasy I come up with some interesting melodies, melody is usually my ecstasy focus. When I took acid I was producing rainbows out of my guitar.

Oh, I didn't mean in that way, I just meant it cuts the nerves down, but sure, escapism works, too.

I prefer to bit a bit tipsy before playing a gig, but there has been gigs, where I just get completely shitfaced, it gets to the stage where I started wondering if I could still play guitar. But I pulled it off.
