Looking at your Feet
I see so many artist playing gigs just standing there looking at their feet. I realize the young artist may have an issue with self confidence but the sooner you connect with the audience and enjoy the gig the better you will become. Yes this come from year of playing but I often hear really good groups with superb players just standing or setting as the drummer would just looking down and making no visual contact with the audience. Interact and you will really enjoy the gig. Have Fun!
