GUEST,Nancy Musical Intimidation Factor (31) RE: Musical Intimidation Factor 29 Mar 01


As one easily intimidated I'm very familiar with MIF. Tho it happened many years ago I still remember having to go up on open mic night right after a surprise visit from Jose Feliciano....with my 10 chords and imperfect Travis lick.....and a voice that is unstable at the best of times. It helps me to think of all the times I've seen really great musicians flub...forget verses, etc. and how gracefully and unconcernedly they've recovered...this is part of the pleasure of live music after all, the immediacy and intimacy of it....usually puts the audience in the palm of their hands. Breathe...very helpful! And play for your best self, nobody else....Good luck, but you wont need it...you'll be fine... nancy
