Here is my idea for the theme! Not the finished version.


Hey there mate - nice and melodic take here! If you want to make it shine even more, I suggest you to try and link the main ideas in a smoother way - they sound like they are not that well tied together. I mean, think up some passing phrases that connect the main phrases without creating a sensation of just rushing into them wink.gif

Great question!! The more of this story is one simple thing PERSISTENCE!!!! smile.gif

That one thing is THE KEY To soooooo much in life.

WITH AND WITHOUT PAIN KILLERS:Crsn mentioned taking some pain killers and playing to the backing track. hmm. Well, there's that smile.gif But essentially what you are hopefully trying to work towards is being able to get in that relaxed, "in the zone" state without the use of drink/drugs. Not just crsn of course, I mean everybody. Once you can find that place in your mind where your not doubting yourself, not judging what you are playing before you play it, just letting it happen. You are on your way smile.gif

Not sure if this helps but sometimes if I can't find a start I think of an ending and use it as a start, its actually a simple mind game rather than musical approach biggrin.gif

I mean, imagine as if this backing track is an outro rather than intro so you're only giving the finishing touches for a dramatic ending smile.gif just hit the few notes or scales and there, you've already started smile.gif

I like the the way in which this discussion is going and to add my two cents:

1) To answer Gabe's question - the moral of the story is: buy your lady a video camera in order to have an excuse to make guitar movies laugh.gif

2) To get in the zone with music, is a matter of getting in the zone with everything you do smile.gif As long as you can empty your mind and hear the music coming from inside you, you can do a great job. It sounds like a bunch of philosophical mumbo jumbo, but it's actually not.

The more you become aware of the 'mental noise' blocking your awareness to your inner voice, the more you will be able to push it away and create the silence needed to hear what you have to hear. It's like being in a crowded summer town and having a wide window opened. You hear ALL the sounds outside, but not your lovely girl who speaks to you in the room. Close the darn window and listen to the lady - ahaa, you can hear her clear now, right? smile.gif

Here's Papa Het talking about getting in the zone: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...mp;#entry673756

Very original approach to composing but i dig it smile.gif Very cool aspect of playing mentioned - different point of view can change either the lack of inspiration or the whole image of a composition in You head smile.gif

It's always a good idea to look at things from every possible perspective - A lot of people just get jammed in the details, so that's why it's always good to post the takes here and ask for suggestions. You can never know how others see things - of course, in a way that can help you wink.gif

just to clarify, it was a" tongue in cheek" comment , not meant for more than a gratuitous chuckle.

inspiration hits when it hits and nothing can get in the way, unless I chose not to follow it

Oddly enough, that's what the backing made me think of! smile.gif It sounds to me like a intro for a kids ANIME like Ranma 1/2 Full Metal Alchemist or DBZ, along those lines. smile.gif

For example.


I honestly thought that was your intent on the backing? After listening again, I think maybe it's the major key and chord progression that is giving it that vibe in the backing. That's why I liked it smile.gif I'm a fan of Anime and Jpop so it worked out great!

Here is a vid with a bunch of Anime intros. I often play along with movies/anime/etc. smile.gif Great way to practice while watching movies/tv smile.gif
