don't you mean...2?

i was in line at the drug store this evening. near the checkout, they've got a fixture of one of the eighty million guitar hero knockoff games that have sprung up. the box proclaims that there are just three steps to rocking out:

1. practice!
2. rehearse!
3. perform!


maybe i have lost my command of the english language in my old age, but aren't "practicing" and "rehearsing" the same thing, especially in the context of one person poking around on an electronic plastic "guitar"?

There's no such thing as too much practice.

And I think it's using "practice" in the context of something you do alone, "rehearsing" in the context of something you do with your band. You practice your song on your own, then you bring your band together to practice it all together.

Or maybe I'm thinking too much into this. :-)

i agree that there's no such thing as too much practice. :) would make sense with full-band versus one person...maybe there's a band in the video game? i don't know. if there is, they should make it clearer on the box.

maybe we're both thinking way too much here.
