I am playing bass in my sleep

    My girlfriend woke me up the other night cause she heard a noise. I went to check and it was nothing.

    Then she woke me up again, she said she heard a noise like knocking on a door.

    Last night same thing. Then she realized that while I am sleeping I am fingering the side of the bed. She thought I was scratching it but no, she is sure I was doing the motion of plucking a bass.

    So maybe I need to see a shrink.

    Do you play bass while you sleep? Sleepplucking?

    I was home sick on day and fell asleep while channel surfing. When I woke up, my thumb was still on the button. I was scrolling through the channels for about an hour.

    It sounds like a severe way of increasing practice time to me.

  9. My wife has told me that I do the same thing, but since I'm asleep I'm not sure if its actually "playing" or just twitching in my sleep.

    My drummer complains because often it sounds as if I'm playing bass in my sleep.

    Other side of the coin I'm guessing?

    I find myself doing this on the subway a lot... If I have to stand and hold onto a steel pole, I practice left hand technique, if I manage to get a seat I do right hand on my knee!
