Im wondering, do guitarists really smoke that much pot or do all do drugs? I mean i hit the ganja here and there but i only know like 1 guitarist ( or musician) for that matter out of like 20 that dont smoke or anything. I LOVE MARYJUANA THOUGH.
#2
i smoke pot... all my guitarist friends smoke pot... bassists DEFINETLY smoke a lot of pot... i dont know any drummers that smoke tho.
#3
No, but don't forget that most people in the drug thread are going to be taking drugs...

There's plenty of us that don't, you're looking in the wrong place mate.

i know alot of casual guitarists who do alot of drugs though

I never touch the stuff. I get high off of life, what do I need Mary-J for?

Though pretty much everyone I know thinks I'm on crack...

I'm sure a lot of people exaggerate, too, so that they can look cool in front of their online guitar community.

I guess some people like it if they lack natural creativity.
I can't even play while on pot though. I hate pot.
I love playing drunk, but I'm not sure if I'm actually good at it haha.

I look like I'm high 24/7. I'm a guitarist, even more of a bassist. All my friends are druggies and most of them think I'm one too.

But I've never done any drugs. Funny how that works.

He never said great musicians don't do drugs. He said serious guitarists that he knows. And I second his statement. No guitarists that I know, and are serious about truly learning guitar, do any drugs whatsoever.

I never said anything about it making them as less talented than they were in their time, but im sure if they could change things. They wouldn't have OD and ended their life and career. I'm not downing people for doing drugs or anything like that, to each his own. Their isn't much that you can tell me about drugs that I don't know i've been on the seen and done crazy stuff plenty of times. I've been clean for a little over a year and I still havn't plenty of friends that party and do drugs all the time.

Funny, most of the serious musicians I know drink and smoke pot. We aren't complete stoners, and we're all pretty smart, so there goes the 'drugs are for losers' theory.
#33
i do drugs.
i play guitar.

i dont like to mix the two though. they are kinda like oil and water. you dont play better when you are on drugs. you might have more fun playing on drugs, but it only sounds good to you, usually not to others..

talent aside, they are dead and those who havent done drugs are most likely alive.

i highly doubt that you will think better about music while high. of course, you might think you are playing something amazing but then actually develop that idea while you are clean.

I really don't plan on ever doing drugs or drinking or anything of that sort. this might change as I get older, but as of right now i want to get to college and get myself a high paying job. not to brag, but i do have a very good oppurtunity to follow through with that.

call me a goody-two-shoes, but i just want to keep the things that are important to me close and everything else aside.

Most members are teenagers. Teens do drugs.

I'm sure if you want to any teen-oriented forum there would be many drug threads.

and yet again...i'm not saying that smoking pot or anything keeps you from being a talented musician or intelligent...just that all of the people i know who i would consider to be serious musicians don't do drugs

i hate it when people try to put words in my mouth...

Its because you comment looked like a subtle attack on drug users.

Surely you can see that.

i did nothing other than share my personal experience...if it came off that i was attacking drug users, that wasn't the intention...i hang out with people who do drugs, they just aren't musicians (or at least any good)

The only drugs I have everr felt were detrimental to my guitar playing were weed and the few times I've drank. The weed didn't affect it anywhere near as much as alcohol, but acid and ecstasy have only helped my guitar playing.. As long as you space out each time you do a drug like 'cid or x, you will be completely fine both mentally and musically.
