That quote from Segovia has been the core of my approach to practice for years.

If you just want to sound good to yourself, there are herbal remedies available, and they work. Guys like Dan respect the standards of those whom they entertain. A bandleader I worked for had the practice of posting a sign that read, "The band is not drinking tonite; we play better that way." Otherwise, the patrons would have us half-drunk. Ever try to tell a drunk patron that you don't need him to buy you a drink, and that you won't drink it. . .?

All the time. It's easier in California than it was in Philly.

And if they stay 'till the end, hey, I let 'em. Soon as I'm done my set, I want to kick back too.
