Default Jazz Band Audition PANIC ALERT

So, I've been practicing jazz for the past week (and inbetween, improvisation. Ripping stuff from Pridgen and Pennie for fun.) and this weekend has been very tight scheduled.

Between foxes trying to steal my dad's chickens and me having to look out for them to a gig today where I play african percussion. I've had barely little practice today, and to make it better... I'm panicking incase I mess up my audition :/

I really want the part so bad and all I've done is literally listen to jazz and play it.

Any tips guys? Last minute tips?

Hi

Don't panic, you did practice all week, stay calm and cool, sometimes a break from practice is very good.

Just try to feel OK and relax, is all about a state of mind, if you're mentally prepared, everything will be fine.

I know it's easy to say, but it has work for me in the past.

Good luck with your audition.

Was just going to post about it

I managed to get the place :D I was the only drummer who applied for the spot so I got it by default. Quite surprised and happy about that.

Shall post a thread later :D
