Playing while P-ssed
We’ve discussed this before and I believe that the general consensus is that this practice is best avoided. However, it does happen (probably to all of us). What’s the biggest problem this causes you and are there ways to overcome this without having to sober up? God forbid 🙂
Do you have any interesting stories about playing music the worse for wear? Either yourself or your friends.
My main problem , apart from making mistakes, is that "my ear" plays tricks on me; ie I can’t tell if I’m properly in tune or not so I can get all fidgety and am constantly retuning all the time—it was probably all right to start with!! Electronic tuners can help in these situations but only if everyone else is in concert pitch. You have to a bit of "fine tuning" and "tweaking" at the best of times but this is much harder after several beers.
