I'm going to go play in a jazz gig thats for 18-, basically a competition but you could call it a gig, ain't about the winning. I'm wondering if i should be nervous, i'm more happy and eager to go and play in front of people than worried :L

any tips or stuff i could use or have? I mean its my first time and i don't know much about gigging.

try not to stay in one spot like a zombie move around, headband etc the crowd will feed off of the bands energy

It is jazz mind you roughneck-1, though when i play in front of people or alongside great jammers, i do "fool about" per say.

Practice in front of a mirror.
It will help break you of the habit we all have of looking at the fretboard.
Also, it will let you know what you like like when you move.

I always play in front of a mirror, it makes me feel better, i sometimes laugh at my blues faces though

Mouth wide open, eyes shut (sometimes open to see what i look like) and lean back letting my full concentration on the guitar through my mind and ears.

Edit:

or sometimes the normal eyes shut and bop back and forth, think of Angus young.

pretty much, in any jazz gig, its about having fun, and not about being serious...so just have fun with it, don't worry about it, and if you screw up, make it look like you meant it!!
