Nothing wrong with that performance, Obe-wan.  Sounds pretty darn good to me.  We are always are own worst critics. :)

Stop beating yourself up and go get 'em!

Thanks dberch,


I just did my second gig last night, I did 10 songs opening for the same band, to a room of about 20 people, 10 of those being my usual group of friends that come along. Huge crowd ! The guy behind the bar was less than friendly, and considered it a great inconvenience to turn the stage lights on for us while we set up! There was no foldback, the mics the boys hired were cheap and nasty and would feedback as soon as we added any volume..... The owner left the large screen TV just to the left of the stage on to watch the football scores the whole night....and after the gig i was asked by a middle aged extremely drunk woman which one of the band members was single, when I told her we all are either married or have girlfriends I got a very colorful reply........

I was happy with my performance, got heckled for not playing something from the 60's . There was no buzz from playing. I did it and got off the stage. Better luck next time !!!!

Cheers, Scott.

Sounds terriffic!  On the plus side Scott, you got another gig under your belt in front of a crowd of friends and drunks who probably won't remember, so use it as a great free dress rehersal for the next good gig!

And yet again, the crowd called for "Freebird" -

good for you Scott 
You can control the quality of what you play but not the quality of the listeners or their taste (or lack thereof) in music or manners.

but under the circumstances (being an opener) , I'd think you are obligated to 'keep the paying crowd happy' and play what they want to hear
I guess that's the way the music 'business' works.
