First Time Playing In A While

May 10, 2022

Just some thoughts on my show last week.

I played for the first time since January 2020 before the pandemic. I had been putting off performing live for a long time and finally decided to go for it. I practiced so much that my fingers were sore, I even practiced up until 10 minutes before getting on stage, and I still messed up a few guitar parts…I didn’t realize how excited/nervous/anxious I would be until I stepped up on stage, everyone went quiet, and I had to start playing. I’m glad I did it. I didn’t know how much I missed it but I don’t think the nerves will go away any time soon.

Here’s some video from the show!
