Default Re: If you drink when you play in bars do you drink when you practice?

I totally lose my timing and concentration even after a couple of beers, so I do not drink at all during gigs or rehearsals.

When I was much younger and played bass guitar, I showed up at a rehearsal after a few beers, and although I did not feel drunk, my playing was so sloppy, we could not continue. I felt really bad for wasting everyone's time and that was the last time I consumed alcohol in a playing situation.

Another reason I cannot drink during a gig is, I would have to rush to the bathroom every two songs!!!
