3 am has always been magical. Going back years sometimes I intentially awaken or else something wakes me. I dont question how or why , but alone in the studio with a candle at that hour is special. Its why I did this intentionally at that hour.
We used to do that alot to get that magical take back in the day.

This was intentially done at 3 am in a room of candles and I woke them just to play it for them.

I record in the early morning after a little breakfast.
This is the time I pick up my guitar and because I never have a song in my mind to start, I am going to compose some new ideas/licks etc.
I record these ideas daily although I will probably never touch them. Very rarely I use my Computer and the DAW to finish songs.
I have uploaded 100 plus x songs to the net and I bet this collection gives a fair and true view of what I might have done in the other 1000 songs.

Friday/Saturday evening about 11 PM

Kids - in the bed
Wife - kiss for good night and bed

Workers - back in home or in the hotel ... anyway there is small risk to recive bad call. I can't sleep well If I know someone is on the way...

Finally I don't have to keep my phone in the pocket... my mind is free and ready for playing...

I live in the flat so I need to connect all my toys together in the salon...

I start playing about midnight. Usually my plan is for max 3 hour but I never did like this. I'm loosing time controll or honestly... I don't care about clock. Today first time I looked on the watch it was 6 am...

Anyway... I'm playing weekends when I can clean my mind completly. I tried couple times to play in the middle of week, but there is somewhere in my mind little part of day behind / before me...

Now I'm so happy that my Doughter have just 2yo and She's still taking nap during the day. Now She's sleeping and I'm about to join...

Good night loopers

Now I have no neighbours, whenever I like. The only thing that's been stopping me recently is my health :(

Anytime I can get the chance. Some days work is much harder than others just don't have the UMP. Slip into my man cave if I get the go ahead from the misses. Usually wait for some hot guitar tracks that always starts the creative process. G

Don't have that much time during weekdays, because I leave early, and when I return there's also wife & kid. So late evenings, except on weekends when anything goes.

Night time on the weekends, when no work lurks around and I can be by myself doing what I love :)

Working at night so after sleeping until cooking diner (3 p.m. to 6 p.m.).
Playing everyday with or without (good) ideas or recording.

And the best day is often Monday morning (rest at 4 p.m. for week attack but wake up at 7 a.m. and plugged at 8 :).

If lazy kids (20 & 22 yo) still sleeping:
- don’t care or
- Keyboards or Drums (EZDrummer... I’m not an insane father, drummer neither)
- Mixing
- World of Warcraft

Week end is random but stuff is in our bedroom so I never play at night and I also must deal with moments for intimacy/couple/family life!

“Hello I’m Tof and I am a wikiloops addict, I need you all, I play music... and I love that!”

Hop hop hop

1. Late night. Nearly silenced records have, for some reason, become the most satisfying results & powerful jams.
2. Fav time 8-11pm, the quick ones. Tend to grow epic.
3. Right after you wake up. Refreshed. Still outer space. Most surprising and the only time i truly jam. Requires extrasolar dreams. Easy :)
