(yeah I know this might be a silly topic to discuss) I was sitting around playing last night after the family was asleep. No amp, no goals or practice, just playing. And it occurred to me, as the world went away as it always does, and my "self" drifted away, and I slowly became the music that was coming from my bass, that these are the moments when I am closest to what I would consider God. Its the only time in my life when I absolutely, completely, lose all touch with reality and enter a meditational, almost hypnotic state. My past girlfriends would hate when I reached for a bass or guitar because they knew that I would be turning off for the next few minutes or hours. Luckily my wife understands this and has no issues with it. And its not only when I am playing- my yardstick of knowing when I am seeing truly great music is if they can give me an almost out of body experience. It doesn't happen much, but when it does its amazing. Is this the same for anyone else?
