See you all are talking about like "feeling" the music. Any suggestions?
Greetings Louiekid!!! Sure I have a suggestion for you!
When you play your music you can enter this trance like state.. Feel the vibes flowing threw your whole body!! Its much like taking a Zen type of
class where you meditate! Sometimes making gestures with you mouth and tounge help you reach that trance!
Also remember play music is totally like having SEX! In and out, in and out! keeping with the flow of your partners!! Sex is all about motion and
rythm! I think you know what I mean when I say that..
Music is a sexual act of the mind!! While you may not be naked... Well you can if that helps you you.. but feel the groove.. honestly feel the
in's and outs of the flow!!!
Things can get messed up really fast if you are bumping uglies and off beat! But when you are on beat its like the magic of GREAT sex!!!
For me its always been quarter sections.. One forth notions that seem to intertwine with your band mates!!!
Everyone must be on the same mental level.. And slaming it out like you are really passionate about it!!!
Sometimes I tune everything out, and picture a play boy bunny sitting in front of me all hot and bothered.. Dont just slam her.. ease into it.. Give
her a little foreplay and before you know it... Your making passionate love that grooves on a level that just fits!!!
Or sometimes I feel like Im surfing! You have to ride that wave and enter a mental point in your mind where nothing is around you but the music!
Feel it!!!!!! love it!!!! and be honestly passionate about your craft!!!!
Music is sex... And sometimes you can have great sex.. And sometimes you have bad sex.. But once you find the right group of people, you will know
when you hit that zone becasue you will play a fulll set, and then it will be over in what feels like mere moments...
When I played on stage we played for 1 hour sets.. But only felt like 10 mins to me!!! I then gather all the energy from the crowd and Im put into
that zone... Each of us is different.. But you will know when you feel it..
Just remember playing music is like having the best sex of your life!!!
And that should bring you to a point where you are in that zone!
Hope that helps...
