Mostly 1 and 2.
Though for 1 its a joint, not alcohol or cigs.
But yeah, I just pick up the guitar and play when I'm bored,
I don't make a big deal out of it.

I do go up to 5 and go nuts when I'm at band practice occasionally.

I don't practise, I practice.




The first one is the closest. Not an alcoholic beverage, but usually a drink.
I sit down find a tab and do my best to get through it, if I think it's a song possible for me to learn I'll spend time (hours ) trying to learn it.

I'm #4 but instead of moderate volume, it's however loud I can get without my parents getting mad.

For me, there's two types of practising.

1. sitting perfectly upright on a wooden chair with sheet music laid out in front of me, with a mean, fixed glare on my face.

2. lying on my back, or sprawled over a chair, pissed, just speeding my way through arpeggios and scales to impress people.

4 to help my improvisation and play song by ear
5 to help mentally prepare me to play a gig, or even practice playing a hard part while doing various stage moves so that the first time i attempt isn't on stage.

Combination of 3 and 4 i don't realy like to work my ass off to learn the song as i think it kills the fun so i'm generally just casual about my playing and practicing.

3. Sat perfectly upright, with sheet music layed out infront of you, working your ass off to perfect said piece of music

That's me, except for saxophone, which I like to practice standing up.

This, and number 1.

My practice area is my computer, pretty much.
