At times it's hard for the entire band to practice together.
In the old days I would play with the lead and at other times i would play with the rhythm.
Then all together with the bass and the rest of the band.
You can't eat an entire elephant in one shot. But you can if you eat it piece by piece. Now don't go out the kill an elephant.
I hope you get my meaning and good luck.
P.S. Having chicks around during practice, can be distracting also.
