Scott, you sounded good! Your picking was tight and vocals were fine. I only wish things went as nicely for me the first time I played out and sang at the same time! Keep doing it and your voice will develop the authority  you have in your picking!

see.....SEE.......I told you so  bigrin

I heard no nerves in your voice, as Ben said already.

...any vasilation, came across as vibrato, and that fits the blues just fine...

If you know your voice is a bit shakey on a particular occasion then TALK as little as possible-

a lot of people talk too much anyway and degrade an otherwise fine performance -
only a rare few can win over an audience with their speaking - charm, jokes, stories and background information....

my theory, unless you are as good at public speaking as you are at playing and singing then DON'T !

just sing and play...when singing,   people will just accept a waver in your voice as vibrato - a good thing.

Outstanding first solo! You should be proud and work on a few more songs so you can fill a set yourself -

Hey, thanks guys.

Your encouragement has given me a shot of confidence, my next solo spot is friday week, so hopefully I'll come through it feeling a little more at ease and happier with the result.

I'll keep you posted.


Cheers, Scott.

Gday Denis,

My first one was 6 songs, just opening for my friends band, I chose to do only 6 so that if it wasnt going well it wouldnt be too long until I got off stage. This time around its pretty much the same deal, I'll be opening for the same band (duo) but at a different venue. Theres another guy coming on after me then my friends band headlining ( I also play harmonica in that band). Im planning on having about 45 minutes of songs and instrumentals, so one full set I guess.

Thanks for your input Denis, it means a lot to me having such an accomplished musician taking interest in what Im doing.

Cheers mate, Scott.

obe-

nice job, I know you know you were nervous and probably sing it getter in a room by yourself....but not at your best, it sounded real good.  I would be very happy if I could sing as good as you...but if you listened to my song posted the other day, you know that I need some improving, lol.

Hey Bluesman !

Thank you kindly for the praise ! I saw the clip of yourself and your partner when you posted the reply regarding the stomp boxes. You guys sound very professional to me! 
Hey , I might contact you soon about those stomp boxes, are you still making them?

Cheers, scott.

Great playing and singing Scott.  

I think you should try to find yourself a gig just for you, a whole night...if you've got enough material for a whole night?  

I'm only playing once a month these days...I wish it was more often...

Scott,

It looks like you don't need any more support, but, for what it's worth -- I like it! I'd certainly pay to cover to hang out there and listen.
