It's never easy to play for a short time in those kind of situations. It's partly that you don't get to relax properly, because you're not on for very long - and secondly there is often no warm up time, because you've spent the last hour, or more, listening to others play.powderedtoastman wrote: ↑Sun Jul 23, 2017 5:10 amBut I can't for the life of me figure out how to more consistently relax for an open mic, actually! Even though I consider the folks there to be my friends basically.
I feel like part of it may be that I'm going to walk up there cold and play for five minutes max... if I'm going to play a set for 30 minutes or an hour then perhaps the pressure I put on myself is distributed across that time.
