If you're a decent player don't worry. Of course there will be people better than you - there always is at these kind of things - and there will be people not as good as you. Workshops are all about learning and enjoying your playing anyway, so if at some point you do need help or feel out of place, don't get frustrated, relax and just ask for a bit of help.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

they might be better than you, but they're scared because pat's better than them. that, and imagine they're all in their underwear. if you can play the changes nobody's going to be upser with you, it's a workshop not a show. also, congrats on this fantastic opportunity, you should really enjoy this. if at all possible, record it. if not for us, then at least for yourself, as a memory and as a nice lesson.

DON'T imagine them in their underwear; it may be a rather disturbing vision.....

...instead, just keep in mind that it's a workshop. Look at it as a simple jam session and just prepare to have a great time learning from a true master.
