thanks, ill need, it especially considering how messed up my shoulder is. this is really my second live show, but the first was with a bunch of idiots who had no idea what they were doing, and didn't take it seriously. this Friday and Saturday, ill be playing with some of the best musicians in my area. Im really excited.

I have performed lived quite a bit now . Your first performance your'll never forget. Have fun. Thats the biggest thing. Don't look like your focusing all your attention on your playing. When you first set up your gear your going to be excited and try to rush things. Just make sure that you can hear your amp. I couldn't hear myself for the first half of my show. Don't be afraid to make an adjustment during the show if you have to. Thats very important. Oh and don't be a stick move around!! Have fun and good luck!!

Mike
