If I'm prepared and don't have to e.g. play by ear or solo in unfamiliar or difficult songs, it's usually ok.

(I take that the 4 previous questions address only the social aspect; internet latency would make playing together very awkward at best)

It's kind of hard to play in real-time with people on the internet do to the delay. At least the last time I tried it it didn't go too well. You also have to consider audio quality. Otherwise, it's a good idea. I am open to sharing recorded music with others for editing.

Thanks to everyone who has replied so far, this information is most useful to my study and it is very much appreciated. If anyone else would still like to contribute there is still plenty of time to do so.
Thank you very much

Wow, my answer is easy. NO to all questions. I feel nervous recording myself play even when I'm completely alone.
