I just got my new Boss Micro BR recorder yesterday, and as soon as I hit "Record" my mind went totally blank. I can just imagine what would happen on a stage  rolleye

I was at a seminar with Dr Richard Niles (producer/musical arranger) last week and he said something interesting which was that if we keep things interesting for ourselves on stage, then the audience are more likely to be interested too.  I think that some stage fright is really useful in keeping things a little bit edgy.  Just a bit of it at least.  if it got really boring, then I think there would be a lot of people who just gave up performing all together!

I still get scared stiff when I perform, regardless of whether it's to 5, 50 or 5000 people.  It usually takes about 3 - 5 minutes to calm down and then I love it and have to purposefully tell myself 'You did enjoy that.. try and remember that next time you're trembling at the side of the stage before you go on!'
