array question

I am trying to put out array elements as counters but one line highlights as a mistake and dont know where the mistake lies :)
Thanks for all the help:

The line that is causing problems is the ++freq[1 + rand.nextInt(6)];

import java.util.Random;
public class demo {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Random dice = new Random ();

        int freq[] = new int [7];

        for (int roll = 1;roll < 1000; roll++){
        for(int face = 1; face < freq.length; face++){
            System.out.println(face + "\t" + freq[face]);

Your Random instance is called "dice" and not "rand". Try changing the line to
