the ...ZONE

My best playing happens when I get to the point of "NO THOUGHT", just like with meditation , but when playing guitar its harder, some drugs help, but other then that I am constantly just trying to let things flow out.

I remember seeing a quote here that said something along the lines of.....

"learn all your scales and chords and whatever, and then just forget all that shit and play"

Well when I first started playing I didnt have this ability to "lose myself", but as I get better I can just stop all thought and just watch my fingers move.

Some of you have to know what I am talking about right??????

I mean when you "overthink" something really cool you are doing , you fuck up right???/, do you know what I mean by the "ZONE", snow boarders and others talk about it to, but I have only experienced it with guitar......and maybe hacky sack :smile: :thumbup:

You can experience it with anything you devote time to. It's truly a beautiful thing! I am looking forward to the time when my guitar work shows this. But I have experienced it with other things that I do!

i know what you're talking about man. it's hard to get in "the zone", though. and to not sound like anything else, but just play. i find it helps if i have something to play to (a drummer or bassist).

sometimes you're just in the right mood though, and it flows.
