Davey Performance Anxiety (92* d) RE: Performance Anxiety 31 Oct 99

A lot of excellent suggestions in among the thread creep. I like Margarita's comment about not reacting to your own errors. Just this past week I was listening to a tape of a group I played with in the early 90s, recorded live at a benefit performance at a retirement home, and on at least one cut I can distinctly hear the guitar player mutter "Oh shit", although I couldn't pick out what he did wrong.

Neo, I to have been in situations where my mouth was dry and my knees were knocking. If you enjoy playing and performing, however, you will persevere, and although you may never get rid of your butterflies it becomes easier. In addition, as Michael K said, practice practice practice. If you are comfortable with your material you'll do well.. Happy singing.
