Re: Better after a drink??
I played with a guitarist who was previously in a very progressive and technically challenging band. Apparently the drummer would end every practice totally wasted but he only played drums while drunk so he actually would nail the parts.
Practice makes perfect, I guess.
As for me, I can't play any instruments if I've drank enough to feel even small effects. It just doesn't work at all. I save the beer for after the show.
