During a live show focus on what you are playing rather on all the people around you. If you make a mistake just make a short pause in playing when that happens (on bass) and focus on the next note you need to play..Don't "look" behind.

Some good advice - what do other instructors do to recover from their mistakes?

Great tip - having a strategy for this kind of scenario is very important. I usually just keep playing, and pretend like nothing happened...

Staying focused on stage is very important, especially when you make mistake. Lot of people can then panic and even stop the song, but that is not a way to go. It is important to stop for a second, see what's going on, and start playing as fast as possible. If the rest of the band continues playing it will not be such a bad deal in the end - it would be much worse if the whole band stopped and finished a show in the middle of a song.

If you make a mistake, as Kris said pretend like nothing happened, if you pull a face and grimace at your mistake everyone will know, I`ve seen people turn around and pretend to twiddle a nob on their amp as if that was to blame or something laugh.gif

Your bound to make the odd slip now n then, its normal just dont panic and join back in as quickly as possible, but dont try and "catch up" better not to play maybe the next chord for a split second and come back in on time and in the correct place.

Yep, most people won't even notice - but they will if you panic and keep messing up!

Of course preparation and practice will mimimise the chances of this happening, but it will happen to everyone, guaranteed, at some point, so, how you deal with it is part of your onstage skill set smile.gif

heeheh thats a great tip smile.gif

When I'm going to do a live show I just try to practice and go through songs once again the best I can at home, day before the gig or earlier..Than I feel more confident knowing that I did my best , so when the gig comes everything is left for the moment (mistakes included) smile.gif

Really nice tip, a real tip! The most people are not musicians, so they won't be able to notice the mistake.

Do you ever mix up lyrics and how do you recover from that ?
I remember learning songs by heart in primary school , don't think its easy to rewind and fast forward lyrics in my mind smile.gif

and best recover is to go on with the made up lyrics,until you remembere.smile.gif

Hmm another question for guitar players , do you ever black out on stage ? When you loose concentration and can't remember which chord goes next ? smile.gif It happened to me once , and I recovered by not thinking about it at all - just let the fingers pull it out from muscle memory smile.gif
