    I actually dreamt of a killer grooving bassline last night, and now I can't remember it...

    Yup. I still remember losing a great riff for the middle of Pink Floyd's "Interstellar Overdrive" that came to me in a dream when I was 13. Only fragments left by the time I was awake enough to figure it out...

    I'm actually up at 4 am (4:38 now) writing down a bassline and melody that came to me in a dream just prior. I know myself well enough to know that if I don't get up to write it down I'll lose it.

    Since I picked up bass over 20 years ago, this is the first time I've had this happen to me... that I remember, anyway...

    It's funny, it's happened to me several times, and more recently. Sometimes I wake up thinking it's something really awesome, and then I play it or write it out and think ... "meh, that's not really very good". Other times it's pretty cool stuff that makes its way to bands.
    But I think I'm wired weird... I've wrote a song while recovering from dental surgery, and others while really sick and feverish. Not the lyrics, mind you, just the groove and hooks.
    This is the dental surgery song:

    If I had a dollar for every time that happened to me I could pay for all the gear I've ever wanted!
