Practicing vs Playing with people
I want to know what peoples opinions are. Lately I have been playing with people 6+hours a day (rehearsing, gigs, recording, jams) Its something really easy to for me because I am in music school and if I wanted to and had the time for it I could even be playing with people the whole day, every day. But now that I am playing a lot I have almost no time to practice (sit down with my bass do scales, transcriptions, technique...etc). I feel that my playing is improving every week because I get to play for different groups and always new music but I can't even remember the last time I sat down to practice a solid 2+hours.
Lately I feel that it might be better to have more practice time and fine tune little things on my own so I want to know what people here think as far as what is more beneficial or maybe both are the same... I don't know.
And by practicing I mean actually practicing... not noodling around on the bass.
