Butterflies in the Tummy
Tonight’s the night. I’m going to open mic night and facing my worst fear… SUCKING! Sure I’ve played before, but that was to friends and Diane, other people are different. They can be vicious! Have you ever seen _Showtime At The Apollo?_ They got midgets to drag you off stage!?
I guess I have to face my fears if I want to go forward with this musical career, but it is scaring the piss out of me. I haven’t practiced (or don’t feel it was enough), my guitar playing is all shaky, and I’ve never played my electric guitar live.
It’s all so nerve racking. Luckily I will record my first performance on tape and put it online tomorrow for you all to throw tomatoes at your computer monitors. I guess what I am saying, in the most round-about way I can, is…
wish me luck?
