Every musician I know has some form of stage fright but I’m going to look at it from a guitar players view and give you 5 simple tips to help you deal with your anxiety and stress before and during a gig.
- Practice your material.
- Don’t make eye contact with the audience/people in the room.
- Close your eyes and listen/concentrate on the music.
- Try to move around and play to the other band members.
- Imagine yourself playing the gig or picture yourself on stage a few nights before.
