Is it part of the String Theory?
I can’t explain it. Is it a state of Nirvana? Naw, Nirvana is way too ambiguous. (Because there are so many different definitions of it that mean so many different things. But it’s a place that is not of this consciousness. It’s like getting high but without drugs or any mind altering substance. I don’t think its beta-endorphins. Usually runners have to run a certain distance before their bodies release Beta-endorphins. It’s called a runner’s high.
Mind over matter? Sometimes you can hurt yourself; however if your mind is preoccupied, you won’t feel the pain until your mind focuses on the injury. Then all of a sudden it starts hurting. Why is that?
I’m trying to describe a place that my consciousness goes to when I launch into a guitar solo. Club owners that watch me say that they can almost tell when I’m leaving my body. I haven’t soloed live (In front of an audience) for a few years. The other day I was in my studio and had Stevie Ray Vaughan playing on my Computer. He went into a blues solo and I picked up my studio guitar and launched into my own solo. At a point I could feel myself losing my awareness of where I was and even what I was doing. I was “In the Music”. Does that make sense? I was assimilating into the song. Then I could almost feel something inside me leaving my body.
It was like a flame of passion coming out of my chest. It was like someone flipped a switch. And I wasn’t playing in front of anyone.
I have no Idea….. It feels good and I want more. When you see me close my eyes and throw my head back; I’m going to that place.
