    Sounds dreamy, but I can't do it.
    I'm too busy sleep-walking.

    Of course, Mark plays way better in his sleep than most of us could ever hope to play when wide awake and at the top of our game.

    I also think Mark plays better that we could ever "dream" of

    Does it count if my playing sounds as if I am asleep [or at best semi-conscious]?

    If my playing puts you to sleep would that be "Learn Guitar In Your Sleep" ?

    Is this one of those gimmicks where you play a record while you go to sleep and learn how to play guitar while you're sleeping?

    Or is it the other one?
    (My uncle took that one. He hasn't woke up since.)

    . Uh oh, no this method is really safe. But is it the learning that happens while sleeping, or the playing? Ambiguous I know, but there’s really elements of both. I’m certain I’ve been doing this stuff for years but only now putting any waking thoughts into how to explain it.

    What’s funny is that many think this is a joke. Is it? :

    Oh I get it now, it’s about learning to sleep and play guitar at the same time.

    For tired musicians.

    I can't even learn guitar while I'm wide awake, studying and practicing.

    I tried this method but my wife kept rolling over onto the guitar. I don't think that that is good for an archtop. Might work with a Tele though.

    Both, surely. You learn, i.e. play/practice, consciously and your brain digests it when it's at rest, i.e. during sleep.

    By coincidence, I woke up today and realised I'd put something from yesterday in the wrong place. I hadn't thought about it at all yesterday but the unconscious threw it up this morning.

    We may deal with things in a fragmented, disparate way when awake and busy but the brain orders and distils the information when left alone. It's why we wake up refreshed. Usually, anyway.

    What’s funny is that many think this is a joke. Is it?
    No, but it can be made funny :-)
