tonight was my first gig since i was..13?


and well the guy before me plays 3 of my 6 songs...so now i have to think of stuff off the top of my head to play...

i forgot a lot of lyrics..forgot parts of songs...messed up a lot...it was just an off night

worst part is my "friend" was there with me..laughing at me and stuff..telling me how bad i sucked

so anyways at the end of the night im talking to some really awesome and supportive musicians..and we are going to start a band

but my "friend" is being a jerk and making fun of these guys and me..and ughh


tonight was a confusing night..emotionally

Live performances aint about the music, theyre about the stage presence. As long as your hair was flying all over the place I wouldnt be too worried.
#8
Yeah, that sucks but it happens. It's not something to be embarrassed about though. You just had a bad night. Your "friend" on the other hand, needs to calm down, have a coke and a smile and then realize how easy it is to criticize from the sidelines.

Oh and good luck with the new band I'm sure you'll be playing great shows in no time.

This thread makes me feel uneasy. Whenever I screw up when I'm playing infront of people, I want to die.

i asked my friend if he wanted to get up there..he said hell no..but continued making fun of me

he ruined my spirits...

my stage presence was sub par..and yeah..ughh

Again, it's so easy to stand in a crowd and make fun of those with the courage to get on stage and play. I always used to see these types coming to watch open mic nights at a local music store I used to play at. The difference with them is they weren't there watching their friends play...shameful.

Seriously, don't let them get in your way. Get this new band going and play your ass off.

Open mics are awkward. Some nights they are awesome. I had some awesome open mic nights, and some terrible ones.

I had the best time in my life with one. We were jamming on Hey Joe and I was ripping up a solo and someone came in and said they heard it from three blocks away and had to come in to see it, that was awesome. And on another night we had the whole crowd's attention and my friend and I did a Weezer song that everyone loved and then he walked off and I jumped on to the mic and did Why Don't We Do It In The Road, and everyone applauded. Then my girlfriend's train got into town, and I lost my virginity that night. Best night ever!



Then there are nights that sucked. Couldn't hear myself, couldn't keep intune, all **** went down.

Oh, and the first time I played an open mic deal in six months, I got ripped drunk, and I was just ****ing around and I would step on my cable and unplug my guitar all the time, it was awful, but everyone who did listen thought it was awesome.

I got a big confidence boost that night.

Yeah man, I know how it goes. One time my pants fell off during the middle of a song. I have pasty white skin and the lights were right on them...nauseating. It sounds like I'm just making stuff up, but this did happen, mainly because the pants were very old and the button had long since fallen off from all the wear and tear. I loved them so I kept them (held up using an old belt from a football uniform), but in the end they turned on me.

If your "friend" really was your friend he would have been supportive rather than acting like a jerk. I've known people like this and once I found out they were that way I 86'd em'. Your friends are supposed to be there for you and have your back no matter what. HE is not a true friend.

Just think about it this way, no matter who you are, or how you're playing, everyone else wishes they were the one on stage.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

Hey man, just laugh it off. No one's gonna remember. Turn it around and use it to learn. Next time have extra songs ready just in case.
#28
Don't worry about it.

My band had a gig today and it went ok, though we've had a couple where it's just been horrible.

Just aspire to make the next one better.

The other musicians wouldn't want to start a band with you if they thought you were ****. Ignore your "friend", you might not have been as bad as you thought you were.

you need to beat that "friend" of yours ass, right away

Don't worry, it happens to everyone. AND, if that 'friend' was a true friend, he should be supporting you and not laughing at you.
