I realize that the music is mainly what is on your mind, but a lot of the time I think about other things as well, like movies or people or love or what ever else. It's kind of hard to explain, but my mind sort of splits what it's thinking about. It's not a subconcious thing, because I'm fully aware of what I'm thinking about, but I'm thinking about two things at once.

So what do you UGers thing about while you play?

if im making a song i'll think about specific things and try to put it through my playing... other times i just play and my mind kinda goes blank and i just enjoy it.

My mind wanders while I play. I think about friends, school work, family.

Depends on what I'm playing, if it requires concentration or skill then its the notes, tone and timing. If its easy and I'm going with flow then i think of lyrics I could put with it (if it's my own composition.)
#9
when i listen to a good song my mind sort of like visits another universe (sorta hard to put it to words)
#10
How I restringed my guitar incorrectly and now it's making tons of fret buzz.

But the next set of strings will take care of that problem, no doubt.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE
#11
I'm kind of out of it. I just focus on the song, and playing it right.

It's weird, though. I can play, but listen to conversation. I can't understand it.

I wish I could move more when I was moving as well, and I would think about other stuff maybe (different situations bring different thoughts). Like if I could headbang, or just walk around without screwing up, it might be more intersting.

Well it depends on what I'm doing. If its easy and I have most of it commited to muscle memory then I jsut wander thinking about my girlfriend friends school family whatever. But if I'ts something difficult or requiring physical activity (marching) then usually Id focus on whats happeneing, and sometimes I just zone out completely and forget whatever I'm doing.

I'm thinking about the picture in my head I'm trying to create with my guitar

Really? On a guitar forum?
#21
if i'm playing a song, i just think of doing right

when i'm jamming i think on what am i going to play next so i don't sound repetitive
#25
I try to concentrate on not screwing up 90% of the time, while the other 10% is spent wondering if I look stupid up on stage.

EDIT: And another 10% thinking about what my GF is thinking about.

Wait. That's 110%. I need to get some math tutoring.

Also, especially when playing the Opeth songs I know, I think about my dream guitars, mostly ones I've played at Guitar Center, and much I want them.

Like the Emerald PRS Custom 24 I want, and a Gibson '61 Reissue SG.

Whatever the song makes me feel. If Im playing RATM or Bad Religion, Im thinking about how ****ed up our society/government is. If I'm playing Hendrix, I'm just chillin and havin a good time. If I'm playing my stuff, im thinking about whatever the song is about, from girl troubles to true freedom.

You watch those nature documentaries on the cable? See the one about lions? Got this lion. He’s the king of the jungle. Huge mane, out of here. He’s laying down under a tree, in the middle of Africa. He’s so big. He’s so hot. He doesn’t want to move. The little lion cubs, they start messing with him. Biting his tail, biting his ears. He doesn’t do anything. The lioness, she starts messing with him. Coming over, making trouble. Still nothing. Now the other animals notice this, and they start to move in, the jackals, Hyenas. They’re barking at him, laughing at him. They nip his toes and eat the food that’s in his domain. They do this, Then they get closer and bolder, till one day, that lion gets up and tears the shit out of everybody. Runs like the wind, eats everything in his path. ‘Cause every once in a while, the lion has to show the jackals, who he is. Its too late to be scared. It’s time to kill.

I always think how damned stupid I would look if I was onstage. I have no stage prescence and I'd just freeze.

So basically, just sad because I know nothing will ever come of my playing, because I'm just too scared.

#40
Damn I dont think about guitars or the next sequence thats techincally proper, my mood and whats on my mind (real world things) define the way I play, personal problems, emotional stress, the arguement I had with the girlfriend, the plans I have for that night...all pump me up and I just play, 60% of my playing I'd say was already written, Im now just discovering my licks and such

TBH!!
