    just started wondering today what people prefer to be for band rehearsals, wide awake with lots of energy, or tired?

    i prefer to be tired simply because if im wide awake i start to fidget and try to start conversations

    I would prefer to be awake, alert and relaxed - but as I head to rehearsal straight from work about 5 weeks out of 6, I'm not always at my best. However, once I start to play I'm reminded that there's nothing like a good band rehearsal to make me forget about work. Making music is a fantastic way of changing mental focus; however slogging away at a test piece for weeks on end can take the edge off the euphoria a bit, thank goodness that's only for a relatively short period of the year though!

    I can't do rehearsing tired. I don't concentrate enough and my stamina goes completely.

    I prefer to be at least alert enough to understand what I'm being asked to do, and to be able to concentrate fully on playing what's on the part. I find it hard to be motivated in rehearsals where I'm not 'in the mood'...and start fidgeting and daydreaming and clock watching....but these are usually when I've had a tiring, or busy day, and I could just do with going to bed! (to sleep I hasten to add lol!).
