So this is a real good post for me
I have had concerts with my guitar that has been awesome, but any of them was perfect, I have never had a 10/10 concert and if I ever experiment that special fredom in the moment I need it and I create something that impress myself because of the potential to play with the heart that I didn't know it was there I will really die of joy, I can say that that is the goal of my life, it would be so beautiful to create what I would create with the instrument the way I want it, and amplified because I am in a concert
So, I have had sometimes the ability to take this energy of the concerts and enjoy it, and then create something that is better than normal. As i said, I have never had a 10/10 concert and seriously that is what I desire and I will do anything to feel what is a perfect concert, it's what I chase in my life, but lately... I think that because of my awareness, I notice that awesome concerts as I used to consider them in the past are not that awesome, because I am not absolutely free, they could be awesome in the past but not anymore
In fact, I had an upgrade in my music recently, and my concerts went from playing for people who don't care, to play for people who wants me do it as good as possible, and not only play, I have to dance too... and I have never danced
and I am just there like okay raul let go your mind, relax your movements, don't create tention
thanks god I don't have to speak!!
So in the concerts, most of the time I am okay, I am not absolutely relaxed, but I am okay, in fact what I play is easy so there is no problem. The problem comes when I have to play the solos, the solos are very fast parts, so I need a lot of focus, I need to bring everything I have learnt to make the solo easier, and what happens most of the times is that I am feeling such an ammount of energy and enjoyment and excitement that I am not able to play the solo as good as I do it alone, relaxed, in my house. So my fingers don't move correctly, they are shaking, my right hand fails too, and even if the people listening don't really notice I have felt a failure in my solo and I am going down and I stop dancing as I was before.
Soooo, I'd like to know how this works, I haven't really found any topic or interview or audio talking about this, when you are in front of a lot of people and you are nervious, and your sences are amplified, and you can create magic or go down to failure. Does it have to work this way? What am I missing? Can anyone guide me about how can I relax my mind in the concerts and create what I really would create without tension? I mean it's very easy for me to think that I would play great in a concert right now, relaxed, at home, but when the concert comes, when I'm finally in the scenario and the solo of the song comes, the part where everybody will be focusing on me, I just tend to fuck up.
Any help will be very appreciated, if not there is no problem!! Thanks
i feel like i would love one audio of sunnette in equafe talking about this
