You know, this is one of my most favorite ways of practicing, because sometimes, I just hate the way I am playing that day or I feel my sound is horrible.
Since silence never improves (a. jacobs), I have to practice somehow, so I either put the mute in, put headphones on, or turn up the TV really loud. I can't tell you how important the TV is to my practice time. I love to pop in the movies one after one and sit in my room for hours and just practice. And, yes, I do get tons of work done. No, I don't sound better with the TV off either. I practice alot in the sailloft at work too and sound exactally the same.
