Playing live music for the last half year or so has been a great experience.
Special thanks to Fran, Marcy, the Genuine Pub, Tex, Gil, the Witches and of course, Donna, for all the support along the way.
Its easy to see how this plays with your head - you start playing, look up and hours have passed.
It's really not as scary as it might seem - at least for me. The only stage fright I experience is soloing on things I don't know...
Perspective is important, too. There are always incredible players out there - but who cares. You do your thing and they do theirs... Learn what you can from them.
