    I don’t drink beer when I play/gig.
    It makes me play noticeably crappier.
    I don’t need that.
    I do drink beer.
    I just drink it at home, when I’m doing nothing else.

    Like when you sent someone out for beer and they return with a case of Old Milwaukee Lights....o_O

    We're talking tone not playing.......so yeah, my tone gets better in a one to one ratio with the amount of beer I consume. After a twelve pack or so, the tone I hear is right up there with the best of the best (at least that's how I perceive it) :twisted::lol::lol::lol:

    Tone doesn't improve with alcohol. My playing sometimes does. There is a fine line. BTW. I think there might be some people wiping their guitar down with a beer right now. Just wondering what type of beer is best? If you want a lighter tone, Coors light, darker, tripple Stout. Ha ha.

    I play better when I have been drinking.

    SING better too.
    And louder.

    And I'm more charming and attractive to women.

    :oops:
