A handjob.

Step 1. Talk to a girl.
Step 2. Ask her to meet you in the closet.
Step 3. She shows up: She gives you a handjob.
She doesn't show up: Jack off.
Step 4. You get some hand action.
GHOST BLOWJOB!
WHOOO! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!

ummm...no

take deep breaths right before you go onstage. and do things that take youre mind off it. play guitar, listen to music, watch tv or whatever else you do in your spare time

stretch/excercise, playing becomes less effort, at least for the first 20 minutes, by which time you'll be confident enough to carry on alone

I asked my son he said nothing but he just asked me he wants a psyachatrist (spelling?) Because he heard voices calling out his name. What a freak.

Have a couple of beers or something, but make sure it is not enough to affect your performance, that would be being an asshole.

Don't smoke weed!! Maybe have a light beer just to loosen you up a little bit but not effect your playing. Or get ****-faced, then if you fail on stage you can blame it on drink.

Soak your hands in a bowl of water saturated with Epsom salt.

Really loosens up your fingers.

this, also, remember, the audience is there to see YOUR band, and to see YOU. I have messed up many times in gigs, but, most of the time, I'm the only one that notices. remember, you are your biggest critic, but just let it slide off, if they don't like it, screw them. I like to have 4-5 vitamin waters, they get me pumped up, and make me not worry. and remember, the worst thing you could do is worry so much that you don't even have fun. Just remember, you get to do what you (most likely) love and maybe your getting paid. and, up to a point, you could just rely on muscle memory.

Hope this helps, good luck
cheers!

take a few shots until you are buzzed, but can still play.
