    All playing is practicing. If you're gonna play, you are practicing.

    I'm always practicing in my head. That should be enough.

    I just ask for more talent in the monitors please.

    I don't need to practice. I am already as good as I am ever going to be.

    Missing the point. Practice is an excuse to do something else.

    I avoid practicing because I'm afraid the sound of all those pentatonics will end up in my playing.

    At my age, what difference could it possibly make?


    At my age, I've got plenty of time to practice later.

    I can't practice now, I am working on my character.


    I don't need to practice, I go to jams.


    I am not experienced enough to get a lot out of practice. I have a lot of basics to get under my belt first.


    I know what I am doing, I have a lot of experience. Practice wouldn't really do much for me.


    I get enough practice playing.


    They are all watching Netflix on the big screen, I don't want to disturb them.


    The house is quiet, I don't want them to hear me practicing.

    Well played, sir.
    Dear sir, I am terribly sorry, but I fear I must inform you that what you are playing is most certainly not any part of anything.
