Noodling in the twilight state

Songwriters say they discover cool licks, chords and melodies from mindless noodling.

Try this when you’re too tired for a serious songwriting session or otherwise disinclined. Just relax, let your mind go blank and noodle on your instrument. Stay awake, but just barely. And make sure you have a recorder running to capture everything.

It’s in this in-between state that you can access some deep sub-conscious part of your mind or universal mind.

While this may not be considered the proper way to write a song, it’s one of those tricks that come in handy from time to time.
