    if one needs pressure to get through a gig, it is useful to "simulate" that in the practice room too. A gig is not the place for surprises.

    My rule of thumb is that I should be able to play everything needed for a concert twice in the practice room during one sitting. If I make it through twice cleanly, I have the confidence that there are enough reserves when it counts!
