    I typically smoke or something lol, but I'm curious to know what others do if they can't get the juices flowing to compose something.

    I do the same thing, smoke and listen to music. By the end of the blunt I'm ready to go.

    Haha see most of my friends are so distracting to the noises i produce in my head during the smoke session. So by the time I get back to my dorm, I'm like "wtf was that melody again?" lolol

    Yeah breaks are good. Smoking is an "To each his own" so I am not gonna comment. One technique I use is just start messing with the drums, then when you hear something good, take a bass guitar out, mess with it, rinse repeat until inspiration hits. Another way is to build on your craft. There is a difference between craft and inspiration I believe, and I think that when you have your craft you generate more when inspiration runs out; on the contrary, it isn't reversable. So with that said, try to construct some songs even if you are not inspired. It may suck, you may crindge by making it, but you will have created SOMETHING, and that is breaking out of the block

    hahaha puffin' is defs a big help, and i suppose that is pretty much taking a break, lol.

    but yeah, i focus on getting more 'in the moment', literally. i find myself getting blocked when im thinking about it too much, instead of just letting shit happen. hence why the bud makes quite a difference = RELAXATION.

    I have to put the music all the way down. The problem is that I stay away too long, then have to relearn how to use pro-tools every time. I do gain new knowledge with each break thou... I spend alot of time listening to styles and trying to understand the dynamics of stuff. I've also been working harder on the music theory and really trying to branch out into other styles of music.

    I think as Producers, we can put too much pressure on ourselves to deliver good stuff. That's why I smoke sometimes, just to relieve the pressure and remind myself this is me. Music is supposed to be an expression of yourself, so I really make sure I'm calm and comfortable before putting out some stuff. Well I do now at least lolol
