Soon I will play banjo for big audience the first time

Posted by Janna on Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Yes, it will be my first perfomance with will be soon - in April, 15

I feel fear to play for people, I'm thinking what if I would forget some notes during my perfomance..? I don't know how I would play when people look at me... I'm scared... And I have no bluegrass band with musicians who could help me, only one guitar player and me with banjo as solo instrument!.............

It is very cool to play for people, but I don't know how my fingers will pick in that moment...

Best of luck to you Janna!  I'm certain you will do fine!!  If your performance is not perfect, it will improve with time and experience.  Don't give up, you will overcome!  I have listened to your tapes, and you sound really good!

best to you,          Don

Good Luck Jana!  You will do fine.  Your stuff is solid and sometimes the pressure makes you even more on top of your game.  Post some of the tunes afterwards if you can.

Hi Janna,

Don´t worry, I guess you will enjoy playing as soon as you are on stage. Don´t be afraid of mistakes such as wrong notes, you´ll be on the safe side as long as the rhythm is steady. The people are coming in order to enjoy your picking and not for counting mistakes. It will be a great experience.

Happy pickin

I recently played in front of a large group for the first time -- my church!  It was just me and a guitarist (not a bluegrass guitarist, either!).  We practiced together a grand total of about 1 hour.  Needless to say, I was VERY nervous!  I led off with a solo, which didn't go perfectly, but "good enough."  We only played one song, and some people sang with us which took some of the pressure off -- everyone had nice things to say to me afterwards, so I guess it went alright.   As long as you make sure you know the song(s) well, you will be fine!  Good luck!!!
