in 2 days, i have to perform at a gig with a friend, and i can't stop thinking about it.
it's an all-acoustic gig and i dreamed that i was playing 'on the mend' by the Foo Fighters last night. When i woke up, my mom told me that i was sleepwalking that night, and i grabbed my guitar and started playing the song all the way through including the solo and she said i played it almost perfectly (while i was asleep) !!!

i find this very strange and i wonder if it happened to anyone else too.

pity you sleep-played such a crapola song
Fissh demands you cease this faggotry at once!

Thats awesome!
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

ROFL, that's awesome.

One time, I had been working on the Crazy Train solo all day, so I dreamt about playing it at night. I distinctly remember that all the fingerings in my dream corresponded with how the solo goes, and it sounded exactly how it should.

Kinda weird, since I usually have pretty abstract dreams.

I've heard of people cooking and all sorts while asleep. Strange.

I remember reading about a photographer who went around with the Rolling Stones, he said they were recording an album (I think in some mansion, so it might have been for Exile...) and Keith played in his sleep, not with the actual guitar or anything, but lying on his back his arms were going.

allchavsrgay....learn the english language before you post again.

That'd be pretty cool, Did you know the song beforehand or was it a weird coincidence that you learned it IN your sleep. That'd be so rad.

i already knew how to play the song, wich is pretty obvious (especially when the gig is in 2 days)

Nah I think was hot and he didn't have covers, he was just lying down sleeping. I'm pretty sure there was a photo of it.

it's not always in a dream. i'll think of something, forget to write it down, come back 30 minutes later and be like..."ugh....dammit.."

Dude, this thread went from talking about playing guitar in your sleep to Keith Moon wanking in his sleep!

That MUST be some sort of achievement.

My friends say that i talk about guitars in my sleep, and i've woken up playing my guitar as well. It's not surprising really since all I do all day is play guitar, so why should sleep stop me
