who's tried it?
what happens to your playing, your touch, timing, creativity? etc
At the time you think its great. If you taped it and listen to it later, you will think... it sounded alot better when I was high.
I did that when I was a LOT younger and able to control it.
Now at 70, playing straight is the bigger challenge, with all the meds I take.
There's another way????

It rolls the foreplay up with the climax... BAM. When straight I have to work my way up, build momentum until the energy blossoms. It takes longer and lasts longer. But a little hybrid sativa/indica can and does inspire to try new things.
It helps the directional sound waves.
Being high was the inspiration of the Beatles rooftop concert
Many many years ago....I used to get high and play live (performances were recording frequently). When you listen back and hear all the mistakes, it become obvious why! Stopped doing it and the mistakes all of a sudden were not there!
Back in the day crafting ones buzz was common - but knowing ones limits was
important. Also it only applies to live music or a 'jam'.
We would never alter if in the studio - for one thing Studios were too expensive
to screw up in - and as is the case with most people it was very difficult to be
As for your question - how old are you?
It depends on what I’m high on.
Marijuana, I’m useless.
Cocaine, I’m unstoppable.
I can barely play sober. Come to think of it, I might sound better to myself playing high.
Santana dropped LSD before playing at Woodstock. Starts talking about it at about 3:45.
There has never been any quality music made when drugs were involved! I thought everyone knew that?
To actually know that I suggest you get 2 hits of windowpane, 1 pint of Jack do it all and let us know.
No guitar music has ever been made under the influence of drugs. A question that just won't have an answer.
Pot makes me stupid, hungry and sleepy.
Not a good combo for music, let alone anything else.
I smoke like every leap year so it hits pretty hard, don't think I would be in my best shape to play. Maybe I should try and record something next time around, could be fun. Or not.
If it's a jam hell yeah. If its a paying gig not so much. Never at rehearsal.
Weed makes me paranoid, which isn't conducive to a long session (or playing at all). Not for me, sadly. If a rehearsal is more casual/jam-oriented, or I'm playing along with an old album I already know note-for-note, I might sip on some bourbon, but that's about it. Not consciously trying to become a teetotaler. Just boring.
As far as other players, I do know a guy with a stiff/shy streak in his playing who loosens up a lot when (a little) stoned, but in most cases, there's an inverse correlation between one's quality of playing and level of intoxication.
