Usually I play clean and dirty channels. As for what I am playing at that particular time, it depends. If there is music coming over the sound system in the store, i just jam with that for a bit, either playing chords with the songs or improvising a solo. Then when I get a quiet moment between songs, I do a little riffage of what I was poreviously playing to hear the guitar without background music.
No matter what you do, playing the guitar with something you are comfortable with will help you focus on the instrument itself.
