The Zappa Composing Method

“When composing, would he go straight to drawing notes on music-sheets, or would he use a piano/guitar and hum along until something good came along? How much of his compositions were accomplished during rehearsals, and how much was defined right away on the “drawing board”? To what degree did FZ’s “sidemen” contribute to the tunes?”
Questions, questions…

One thought on “The Zappa Composing Method”

  1. Zappa composed in every way there was to. I think it’s all there on the records. Not a very ‘heavy’ answer, but the right one, I think.
