So i played tonight, in public..
and screwed up hehehe
it wasnt that bad a screw up, i was nervous, i was out of my comfort zone and it wasnt fully rehearsed with my teacher.
People seemed to think i'd done ok, which was good :)
Did Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars - soon to be on the 'Tube.
Oh, yes, I did enjoy it, even if my left arm did start shaking a little later on hehehe
big thanks to my guitar teacher (forrest - if he reads this) :D
Way to go Mike. :D
Sounds like you had fun, that's what it's all about. Plus you learned a valuable lesson.... PRACTICE :D
Keep at it, it gets easier the more you do it.
If you know something better than Rock and Roll, I'd like to hear it - Jerry Lee Lewis
gonna see if i can learn something else for next time - if i could shift chords faster, then there would be plenty for me to play lol
Good job, Mike.
You've taken the first step. You'll be taking more steps and as Wes stated, they'll get easier. 8)
"I play live as playing dead is harder than it sounds!"
Mike, we've all been there. Trust me, next time will be easier. Just keep practicing and keep playing out. It will work itself out.
Ambition is the path to success...persistence is the vehicle you arrive in!!!
Great feeling gettin' out there, eh? I still remember vividly my first gig 3 years ago. My hands were shaking horribly during the first song.
Were you really nervous the day before and the day you played?
"Nothing...can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts."
