I don't know about you guys (& gals), but I consistently get my best practicing in very early in the morning. On a normal workday I'm up at 5am. After 2 cups of coffee while I do some catch-up on TB, I'll plug in and practice for about an hour & a half, pausing only to have a quick breakfast, before heading out the door for work at around 7:15am. I spend 80% of my workday driving a 30' truck in and around the city. I usually get home somewhere between 3-5pm ... the start time of the afternoon rush. At that point I'm pretty stressed. If I try to pick up my bass as soon as I get in, my fingers and my brain aren't on the musical wavelength, and my sound really suffers. I usually can't get it back until after a few hours of just relaxing. Then I'll plunk around for at least another hour before bed. Luckily, the Wife doesn't mind if I practice lightly while we watch a movie or something at night. So on workdays I'm rockinest' from 5:30-7am. Weekends I can play almost all day with very productive results. I really hate being more than 2 hours away from my bass at all times! When does your most productive practice time(?) happen?
