    Well, I think there's also a difference between practicing to build chops and practicing to maintain them. If you're already an accomplished player and you just want to keep all the different keys under your fingers, plowing through Clarkes without giving much thought to it might be okay. But, IMO, it would still be better to turn the TV off...

    I saw Michael Sachs, the guy who literally wrote the book on practicing fundamentals, give a masterclass a few weeks ago and he said something to the same effect - that he doesn't practice with any distractions. Do whatever you want, though, I'm not your mom here to lecture you :-P
