Yes, and it sound like it, too!
I draw pictures all the time without looking at the paper. I just stare intensely at the object I’m trying to illustrate and do my best to capture the main details without ever looking down. It has produced some very interesting results.
..with regard to playing guitar with my eyes closed, I honestly wish I could do it better. I get so deep into the notes and then- wrong note! and the wheels start to fall off...I gotta look at the fretboard at least every once in a while to keep me in position.
All the time, also try not to look at my fretboard when they're open.
I play with my eyes closed very frequently. Also, if I'm not intentionally careful about it, I might even drool a bit like Jimmy Page even though I don't play any Zep stuff.
Interesting about playing with the eyes closed, never really thought of it.
I play and write music exclusively in the dark. Lights off, black out curtains on my windows. So I guess it's a similar way of going about the whole thing. Besides, it would feel wrong playing the music I play with the lights on. Need the darkness to feed into that funeral doom-y mindset.
Yeah. I allow myself to zone out and flow.
I roll my eyes all the time while I'm playing.
I can barely play with my eyes open. If I close them and can't see my stupid fingers, I'm even worse.
My wife ran into the room while I was jamming to Moe on Pandora to tell me we were under a severe thunderstorm warning. I never saw or heard her until she got right into my ear.
I don't close my eyes (I think...) but then with my not very good eyes it doesn't make much difference.
Unless I am doing something tricky way up the neck I don't ever watch what I am doing.
If anything, if I try to watch what I am doing, I will sort of forget the fingerings for chords that my fingers learned decades ago.
I don't make an effort to not watch either.
Mostly I don't think about what comes next in a tune unless is is something new.
