    Ed,
    if you are not getting paid tons of money, you have NOTHING to prove. Do not waste yourself in rehearsals - you will get bit where the sun does not normally shine when you least expect or need it!

    Just say NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    wait... i could be getting paid?

    you're right. i gotta learn to save it for the performance. my problem is that i go in giving a hundred percent every time, whether it be practice or performance.

    That happens to me a lot. Everyone expects the other firsts and myself to be able to play to the cows come home, and we simply can't. My lips blow out and cannot play any longer.

    Just take a break afterwords, and you'll be fine the next day.

    Ed,
    you ARE giving 100% when you do not waste yourself. Exceeding sensible limits does not mean that you are giving MORE than 100%. You are actually just increasing the "I am an idiot" percentages.

    Play smart! You win every time!
