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.

Congrats again.

Good job, Mike.

You've taken the first step. You'll be taking more steps and as Wes stated, they'll get easier. 8)

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?
