As Glenn pointed out, work on a good poker face. Ok. Here's a story for everyone. It was a few years back. I was playing in a nice cozy intimate space in Ann Arbor. I have a cover of "Here, There and Everywhere" that I pull out every so often. I know the tune like the back of my hand and,...

Hmmm ... I think I mentioned this on another thread but I will learn to play the Theremin at some point.

And although it's not a wierd instrument, I would really love to take a crack at the cello some day.

After the concert he remarked at how embarrassed he was making so many mistakes. Good comments by all. This one brings up another point I would like to add to all this though. If a stranger approaches you complimentary of your performance, you should ALWAYS smile and say "thank you" regar...

I've usually had a core idea of what to start with, and then went into improv. For some reason I get really nervous and then forget all my stuff at open mics (or similar non-concerts), so its actually better to improvise. If you have practiced abit I'd say try it, and then weave your songs in. Ah y...

Now I'm really nervous! A little nervous energy is a good thing. Just wash your hands a couple of minutes before you play so they're good and dry. Remember to breath. Most of all, warm up somewhere even if it's just unplugged in a corner. And since even some of your more seasoned performers can be ...

One tune is enough for an open mic.

Two is better but not necessary.

Any more than that would likely where out your welcome unless you're the host. I used to do two a week.

Hi all, I'm considering unloading my Korg MS2000B. It's a nice little analog modeled synth from Korg. Small, compact and easy to use and it has a built-in Vocoder. I really like the sound of this unit. I originally bought it thinking I might add it to my live rig but that never really panned out and...

I'm really comfortable with it in a band, but solo I'm still pretty scared! This is certainly understandable. Solo is a different beast entirely. What you should do Pete is find some open mics and start going. This is a great way to get over the solo jitters. Generally the skill and competence leve...

Having all that theory knowledge of harmony and scales and ear training has gotta count for something! And the discipline of practicing right from the start! It's interesting you should bring up the discipline of practice as I was just having this discussion with some friends a few days ago. Not ne...
