Send good drumming vibes my way tomorrow!
"Raw" is good Mary, if anything it'll be a good challenge for you, as well as a first impression in your "audition", however, it's not unusual to rehearse songs for an audition, lol.

You're right about the "nerves" factor, a lot comes from a state of mind, be as relaxed as possible, focus on the music and do not think, just play as you feel it, you'll be ok, I just know it :)

I will indeed send plenty of positive drumming thoughts your way tomorrow, good lu... no, break a leg as they say!!!
