Re: Your first gig experience.
My first was in front of a crowd of about 500 to 800 people ( local event here where i live). I remember being a nervous wreck and i almost forgot the opening notes to the first song we played. lol I made several mistakes that night. The band knew it but apparently the crowd didn't because they were into the songs and we got several compliments after the gig. I didn't have any technical issues but i must have dropped my sticks a dozen times..mostly due to me being nervous. lol After that gig playing to a crowd became alot easier and now it's an addiction. I haven't had my fix lately so it may be time to be looking for somewhere to play! lol
