just relax and enjoy being on stage. If you're playing a gig today then I'll assume you already know your stuff so i won't lecture you on thet. But yeah, relax is the best tip i can give, play how you'd always play and just feel the songs.

Bring 2 extra sets of strings and a spare B and high-E string. Otherwise, just play like you always play.

Just before you start, take a good look at the crowd and breathe deep. Just slow everything down in your head and get ready to rock.
