    How many of you all that play a musical instrument play better while
    stoned? I've found in the past that if I try to play the guitar while
    drunk or stoned, I feel completely clumsy and my fingers just don't do
    what I want them to. I've read that a lot of people love playing while
    high, and I imagine I'd enjoy it more as well, but it's just too
    frustrating.

    i play like a god when high. it might just be me getting into it and
    sucking still. but if i see tabs i can play them like perfectly. i dont
    ever play that well around people unless im high. and everyone thinks
    im high all the time so they say " man you suck when your high"

    A buzz definately allows me to explore more when I jam on guitar.

    Maybe it's just me.. wow. I have a friend who plays piano really well
    and he says he writes his best songs high, he also never plays around
    others if he isn't high, he says it takes his anxiety away, but I find
    it makes me more nervous because I know how much clumsier I am.

    I play bad when im high. My fingers lose concentration. However when im high i can invent my own riffs much easier. Relaxes me and opens up the creativity.

    writing songs is great while high, although learning songs or playing
    other bands songs seems to get slightly more difficult, althought you
    do get a nice "feel" for the music. I love writing songs on LSD,
    i mean if it werent for LSD, who knows what music would be today?
    It shaped a whole generation in a way. One thing i enjoy playing
    when high or tripping is shine on you crazy diamond, not too fast for
    those stoned fingers, trippy, just an excellent song. Gilmore is
    a guitar god.

    I don't know about better, though I don't play very well at all anyway, but it is definately more fun to play high.

    i have found that playing certain ac/dc songs will cause me to get
    excited and hyped up and then i fail to fall asleep. just
    listening to shoot to thrill or its a long way to the top makes me so
    damn amped. haha yall should try doing angus' little......damnit
    i dont know how to describe it, you know one leg in the air and going
    all over the stage? Sorry im riding on 1 hour of sleep so that
    explination is pretty shitty. I actually feel like a moron with
    that explination.

    I'm in a band and I play guitar, and I love to play while high. I'm not sure if I play better though.

    i'm pretty sure i play guitar better, but i could just be thinkin' that. it feels so much more natural is the biggest thing though, like i don't even have to think about what i'm doin'. that's only if it's a song i know well, learning something would be quite a bit more shakey. i find that it's most effective with smaller doses because it gives you the natural feel with less fucking up of motor-skills.

    Bro Im right there with you, I cant play for sh$$ when I'm high. However, I do notice I get different types of ideas for songs when Im stoned, and usually Ill just work the riffs out or humm them into my cell phone so I can remember them later.


    While a mushroom trip was comming on, I literally felt my guitar abilities increase exponentially, and that was pretty cool. I set my guitar down after a little while because the trip was comming on, but I still remember that feeling...my fingers were flying!


    Also, I was working on some electronica while under the influence of 10mg of 2CI, and that was *really* fun. Whenever I'd dial in a new synth patch that I liked, Id get this intense wave of euphoria. It was a really cool experience!

    like the second or third time i got high i picked up my guitar and tried to play something and my fingers just wouldnt function. it felt like they were stuck in a ball of dough. but now when i play high everything just flows better. i have better rythm and its much easier to write songs. no one in my band smokes or likes when i do so ocasionally ill do it before i show up to practice and not tell anyone. its much more fun too.

    i find when im high i can write music better than ever. my concentration on it goes through the roof.. its all about the person though.. ive been playing for 6 years and i am not as good as when im messed up.


    pot Fact: when you smoke pot it slows down your motor functions it attacks brain cells from front to back. ( i seen the cat scans) when your motor functions shut down your other parts of your brain work better so your learning and concentration levels can increase.. for instance a retarded person (low motor skills) has a better ability to play insturments. or can draw better.. ect.
