One of the hardest things for any musician is developing the ability to transport the music you hear in your head onto guitar, it can be frustrating experience (and it usually is). Because we can't always sit back with no interuptions and just let our ideas naturally come together, there are always distractions from others, and our everyday (or even night obligations.) But when it comes to my best results, its usually when i'm not thinking about it, sometimes it when I'm on the road with my jeep, or sometimes I just get a certain idea in my head on the job. (That Martin Backpacker really comes in handy..:D

When writing music, it can be as simple as knowing what you like to hear, just like when you hear one of your favorite guitar riffs on the radio, or when you hear the most exillerating solo for the first time. Sometimes its worth relying on your imediate re-action...
