Psychedelics and music, songwriting.
    #4487389 - 08/03/05 12:20 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I've noticed that I have no ability to concentrate on music when I am fungus'd. Is mescaline a better choice for me to focus on songwriting? I've heard it was much less of a mind fuck. Should I just stop using drugs as a crutch and try songwriting on my own for the 100000000000000000th time?

Try taking a smaller dose of mushrooms, ive always had more ability to focus on acid, but have made some ridiculous sounds on mushrooms. As for the mescaline i cant say because ive never tried it, but from what it seams it would probably be harder to focus while on mescaline than on mushrooms.

On mushrooms I can never think straight. When I'm coming up I can't sit still. When I'm coming down, I don't even want to move. I just heard mescaline is a lot smoother and easier to handle. Acid is unavailable.


What I have been taking is a pretty low dose. (I don't bother measuring though)

I find it quite hard to get an idea for a song on mushrooms, but rather when I right a riff or something catchy I tend to play around with it on shrooms. I find that when I do shrooms and play around with parts of songs that I wrote I just find so much more of an area to expand too.

It was very hard though, I have tripped a ton of times, and up until my last 10 trips or so I have mastered the guitar under influence of heavy shroomage.

I think that its easier to create more experimental type music under the influence, but if your trying to actually write more tangible music you should probably be doing it after coming down and using the trip as a type of inspiration.

I had a small amount of mushrooms two days ago, no real psychedelic effects, but I had some interesting ideas for a childrens book I would like to work on. A friend and I were discussing it, had some weed and drinks as well.

It could almost have been a psychosomatic thing, but I would definitely recomend trying smaller dosages, sub-psychedelic.

When I was coming down on the mush, I was too tired to do anything but lay down last time.

Yes, I think that sobriety is the best state for writing. Drugs can be good for inspiration (so can real life!), but when it comes down to the execution, it can be a slight hindrance.

Godo lcku!

Sometimes small doses of mushrooms can really open a person (me) up to expressing their (my) ideas to others.

When I'm on mushrooms, I love to make music!!! As long as I'm not in an "intense-a-fried" state of mind the guitar works well.


But when I am intense-a-fried, I tend to stick to the didgeridoo, if I attempt any music at all. I find the didj to be kind of a "primal" instrument...goes great with mushrooms!!! :mushroom2:

didjin- the didgeridoo is very badass. My friend just bought one and is getting pretty good on it...havent heard it trippin yet though. How long have you been playin? Can you circular breath?

As for the topic at hand...I know that a lot of authors used to use mescaline and write while on it. So it would probably work out nicely if your lookin for some intense shit to say/sing/whateveryoudo.

As far as makin music...give mushrooms another try. Like everyone has said low dose works great it will suck you into the music enough without distracting you on the trip.

Im sorry i don't have much advice about doin mescal.    Ive never tried it myself...but i do have advice on making music. Find a friend who wants to jam and trip out too, this will give you the extra nudge you may sometimes need when trying to bring yourself around to makin something. Jam sessions work best while under the influence. Set up some mics or a recorder of some sort so you can go through and find the good stuff you want to recreate later.

Ive had some trips where i feel very "musical" and others where i wanna do nothin but listen to music. It really all depends on YOUR mood and how bad YOU really wanna do something.

Hope all this jibbajabba helps. GL bro
