I've recently just begun gigging again after about a year off, doing mainly covers, Bon Jovi, The Killers etc..mainly rock bands and also a few of my own songs: www.squidoo.com/write-a-song, in fact I have a gig this weekend, but I for some reason have developed stage fright. I'm not sure why, I always have nerves but I think that's what gives us 'the buzz' right! It's that little rush that leads to a good night..better than sex! (well maybe that's going a bit far). I'm pretty comfortable with the songs but in rehearsal a couple of times I've forgotten words..mainly at the start of a verse..which has un-nerved me.
Anyhow I'm actually losing sleep. I did a search on google and found a few ideas to get over it but did find this download which does seem to have helped me get a grip. If anyone is interested or suffers with nerves I'll be happy to report back on Sunday after the Gig and let you know how I got on. Wish me luck:)
Here's the thing I'm pinning my hopes on:
Does anyone else have any tips?
