Playing (instruments) while tripping...
    #3447208 - 12/04/04 09:19 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Well, i have yet to try shrooms and receive a full effect (I ate half a chocolate at a string cheese show...just felt rather stoned) and i would like to know how playing instruments while tripping would be. I play drums and I'm planning on tripping soon with my friend who is a guitarist (we've been bandmates for a looong time). Would I be capable of playing while in that state? we have sort of a phish, hendrix, and maybe slight psychadelic groove to tha sort of stuff we play. Anyone else in here jam out while trippin?

I'm also a drummer, you will not believe how incredible it feels to create rhythm while tripping balls, I absolutely love it.  I think you'll be able to play ok, as long as you're decent while sober. If you suck normally, you'll suck worse tripping :wink: I sometimes lose my coordination on mushrooms, acid is great though. It all depends on the trip, every one is different. Overall, I'd rather drum sober, but it's quite an experience

I was once asked to set in at a Live on stage Gig and I was about 2 hours into a 2 gram trip.

I failed. Me and my guitar left with a new humbleness.

But many hours of practice time was dedicated to playing and tripping.


Lesson number one. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RECORD BUTTON ON

as you will play stuff that is very cool and will not remember it the next day.

I played my guitar while coming down from a 4.5g trip. It was awesome, my fingers were so loose. I was playin some incredibly good riffs-- mushrooms are sweet fo enhancing creativity.

so I imagine, you would be able to handle it. Just, with higher does, it's harder to control what you're doing.

I don't listen to any of the garbage said about playing poorly while tripping...
Tripping opens you up, gets you loose, and so long as you feel comfortable, you'll be at the top of your game. There's so much energy there...
As far as high doses go... It's almost as though I realize the futility in overplaying, and am satisfied by being overwhelmed by a single note. If it sounds bad later, it's because I'm not listening later. My ears are closed 90 percent of the time, but I'm training myself to be more open with psychedelics...

Definately worth rying out, I've had some awesome times banging on a drum or skatching on mushrooms. LSD I've found is more cohesive to musical expression, the Skratch Pikilz used to take sheets & rub vinyl all night long in their basement. Came out with some real experimental sounds & new styles. Do record what you play so you can reference it & carry on the unintentional genius later.

I play guitar, sequence writting psytrance/rock ect and I foujnd playing guitar on shrooms to be great, the strings had pink `n` green lines flowing out of them however which makes co-ordination tougher if you allways look at the fretboard when playing, but ya get used to it and it helps ya playing without looking too :-)

One time I did a gig with a band I used to be in as rythmn guitar and our singer+solo guitarist was on shrooms for the gig and he did some really spectacular solo`s, very different which helped the energy and we ended up with some cool long improvised sections in the tunes :-)

When I trip, I don't really play my instruments per say. I explore the instrument. I try to find new sounds that make my mushroom mind happy.

that's an excellent way of putting it. on lsd i can just lay back and let it groove, but on mush i seem to try and come up with abstract rhythms and wierd syncopation, most of which isn't very good :grin: but occasionally you stumble on something awesome, just make sure you remember it! i wouldn't recommend performing a show this way, btw

If you find yourself picking your sticks up and laying in to the same groove every day, tripping will change this. Every beat will have an impact. Your communication with your guitarist will open up...way up...maybe a little too much. I've often found myself so tuned in to what everyone is doing, there becomes no beat but just a splurge of spontaneous noise. Yeah...

My buddy plays guitar a lot better when he's tripping, I don't know if you will though.

I'd be wiling to bet their drummers are sober more often then not though..you need a perfectly sharp mind to have good time. Hart, Kreutzman, Fishman..they were always solid.

I suck at guitar while tripping, as far as my skill goes, but I'm much more creative and come up with more.

I've attempted this and ended up with nothing more than a couple of dents on my guitar. For me, the body high is too strong for me to control my fingers.

I've jammed while being stoned quite often though. I like this better than jamming sober as I'm able to let my inhibitions go and just break out.

It is easy to connect to your music emotionally while tripping. Worth doing for sure.
