open mic night

Im thinking of having a go at an open mic night some time in the future, I've been playing a while now and feel im getting quite a few full songs nailed,
Any tips or stories of your personal encounters with playing to an audience live for the first time

Look after yourself on stage. What I mean by that is make sure you do a good, and quick sound check. The more confident and comfortable you are with your sound and tone, the better you'll belt the tunes out.

Open mics are very very chilled out.

Record your playing and singing and listen to it after some time (at least several days should pass). If you like how you sound, then you probably ready to perform.

Know your stuff, try not to overthink it and rather try to concentrate on transmitting feelings with your voice
