    I use a digital recorder when I am improvising at the piano or organ ... that way, I have a permanent record of the tune and can further develop it later on.

    I also use visual aids ... for me, looking at a grand stained glass window draws inspiration - there are dozens of theme ideas running through my noggin all the time ... I always have the recorder going when I am composing a new thought or idea.
