    About 2 nights ago,and 4 months before that, and about 4 months before that, and about 2 months Before that even!! I had these strange dreams, where I thought of something, and a bases to a tune was heard, tunes that i'd never heard of before, luckery for me, I have a keyboard that records tracks, but fuck, it didn't half freak me out, coz, believe it or not, the tunes, were pretty damn good! I keep getting them, and feel, that it is some kind of gift(wahey to the gift!!)!! I have wondered, am I the only one who has experienced this, or are there any others out there that have experienced this strange occurance!! Peace!!!!!!!(to the gift!)

    I sometimes get it when I take a nap. It's not planned. It's luck when it happens. It's like my brain goes on automatic tune focus. I don't get whole songs, just hooky sections. So I usually must finish the song.

    I wrote a couple of song sections after a dream sequence. One was a dream about me & this women I was dating, We're in her house conversing and, all of a sudden, half a dozen of her friends & relatives are outside the kitchen window singing what turned out to be the chorus I ended up recording. Then, we leave her place, I look in the kitchen window, and there they are singing the damn thing again. Then I woke up, it was about 3am, and stumbled to the recorder while humming the chorus over and over till it was tracked.

    Dig it! Sometimes you just gotta hum to get it down before its gone. I hum a lot of melodic lines, but they come to me at the most inopportune times. I'm sure I'll be humming my magnum opus to an audience of one and it will come and go. Congratulations, snagging them and bringing them to life is the hard part.

    Yep, know the great feeling. Unfortunetey, I tend to forget them quit quick.... I've heard Lenny Kravitz say that he dreamed a lot of his albums.

    I had a dream once that was very vivid...the gist of it was I experienced every possible combination of notes....no shit, I'm serious...it was quick and heavy....I think it was my subconscious telling me I'm pissin' in the wind as far as the real world goes, and that the music I make will never compare to what I heard that night.....but the dream didn't upset me, because even though I can't seem to re-create it, it's still in me somehow....gibs

    MM - trying it out in the light of day is the test. I had a couple of music dreams a couple of times, and in the dreams, I was knocked out by the beauty, elegance and power of what I was hearing. I woke up, and quickly got my guitar and worked it out. In both cases, it turned out to be three chords and a really simple, almost annoyingly simple, melody. Apparently Winston Churchill had a dream once in which he had this amazingly deep revelation or insight, and when he woke up from the dream, he wrote it down in a bedside notebook. When he woke up later on, he read something like: "There's a strange smell in the room."

    Me and Winston - we're tight.

    MM - I trust what happened to you, sounds like a gift alright, but it doesn't seem to work so well for me. But when music comes through for me when I'm awake, it seems like a gift too.

    Unhappy

    Never got a tune in my sleep yet. Sometimes they do come to me at other weird times though and sometimes I wonder where the heck they come from.

    dobro -

    concerning the simple melody you dreamed that was stunningly beautiful:

    Mozart once said that he would have given all his works to be able to say that he had written the first line of the "Exultet" which is gregorian chant; no chords or accompaniement, just a simple melody.

    Sometimes the simple melodies are the most powerful.

    I whish I'd dream some nice tunes too...

    Tucci, you're definitely right. I think the most powerful melodies just consist of basically three or four notes, e.g. "Knocking on Heaven's Door", "Here Come's the Sun", verse of "Wonderwall", and many others, but you don't even realize that it's just varķations of three notes that you're humming. It's magic!
