    From boyo: That funk song idea we were working with, move it up one fret and it's Superstition by Stevie Wonder

    No, move Superstition down one fret, and it’s what y’all were working on.

    This is what happens when I try to work up an idea to order. Most of the time, I unknowingly re-writes Stones songs so this is branching out.

    I still need another song... :(

    Reverse or scramble the notes, keep the same rhythm and timing, see if it sounds cool.

    Naw, I'm pissed now. Fishing up lyrics for a more crazed vibe. Less Wonder, more Claypool. Trying to do something to let boyo stretch out on bass.

    Ah, I don't feel so bad now. I wrote The Needle and the Damage Done when I was just getting semicompetent on acoustic...

    And I thought this was going to be autocorrect fail.

    I was texting with my brother who asked me what else I was making to go with the grilled center cut pork chops. I replied hasbrowns, which the phone changed to barbarians.

    He texted back "How are you cooking them?" I (thinking why is he asking me about how I'm cooking hashbrowns) said I was frying them. ????

    He said "How do you keep them from climbing out of the pan?"

    I still had no idea what he was talking about, and texted as such. He said "Dude, read through your texts."

    Added hashbrowns to the phone's dictionary.

    You have to have annoyingly talented kids to get those kind of texts.

    FWIW, moving it up a fret shouldn't matter. If you're playing Superstition, you're playing Superstition. Eb, E, A, C...doesn't matter. :)

    Yep. I think he was making fun of me for not only accidentally copping Stevie, but damn near doing it in the right key. :D

    I was writing a tune with my old band and I "came up" with this gorgeous melody to sit on top of what we were doing. I was so jazzed. It was killer.

    My drummer Joe was grinning like an idiot. I thought he loved the tune. The he said "Chris, Carlos is gonna kick your ass. That's his stuff from Oye Como Va." And it was. Note for note. LOL

    It happens to me all the time.

    A famous musician once said: "if you're not stealing from somebody, you should be."

    Things get into our subconscious, and eventually they work their way out, and as Solomon said: "There is nothing new under the sun."

    To seque into another topic touched on earlier, for me it's mostly the Stones. So prolific over a long period of time THEY USED UP ALL THE GOOD SOUNDING LOW BROW PROGRESSIONS!! I have to assume the stole them from the blues guys but still...

    As Keith Richards once said, “There is only one song that was ever written & Adam wrote it. Everyone else has stolen from that”. Or something similar.

    There is a story that once, Duane Allman woke up in the middle of the night with a beautiful melody running through his head. He didn’t want to lose it, so he called a couple of his guys to meet him in the studio right away to get it down. They rushed, bleary-eyed, to the studio and Duane started playing. After a couple of minutes the first guy turned to the second and said “Do you want to tell him he’s playing “Classical Gas”, or should I?”

    I saw an interview with Paul McCartney a while back about how he wrote one of his best loved songs. He woke up in the morning with a melody in his head, & he couldn't place where he had heard it. So he went round various people humming this tune to them, & they all responded the same - "no- never heard that before". Eventually he realised that he must have actually written it.

    We know it as "Yesterday".
