  1. or does anyone else listen to music and find yourself visualizing the fretboard and or moving your fingers like theyre on a neck/playing the strings, i mean damn near every song i listen to

    i always figured hearing basslines over the rest of the song was natural, but what about the other part? anyone?

    There is no cure. And your friends will eventually ridicule you for it. But you won't stop. The more you practice, the closer the parts you imagine will be to the actual parts.

    Air guitar has been around forever, air drums too. I pound away on my steering wheel.

    I was shocked to learn the other week that not everyone does this. In fact, when I pointed out (while listening to the Pure Funk compilation album) that the bass line from Chic's "Good Times" was dubbed to provide the unforgettable groove in "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugar Hill Gang, nobody seemed interested. Most of them hadn't even noticed the bass line, or heard of "Rapper's Delight". Needless to say I was taken aback.
