I go to the roots of inspiration... I ask myself why I'm doing this and remember the bands, artists and shows that inspires me. I also try to analyse the things that were wrong to improve it.

+1! There's not anything to add to this.
Well said Gabe!

Check what was wrong at the gig, and improve that, and get some motivation for practicing more smile.gif

Remember that for every 'mistake' or bad experience, there is something to learn. So ask yourself what lesson you can learn from the experience and add it to your wisdom. Your life experiences are valuable and it is wisdom that cannot be earned in any other way. Things happen for a reason.. if you don't take the valuable lesson from it, then the chance is that you are doomed to repeat it until you do learn the lesson.

There's many things that have happened to me which were unpleasant but when I'm on the other side of it I can see what I've learned. So I encourage you to look for the positive from the situation, no matter how insignificant it may seem. It could be something like 'I learned that I need to tune my guitar before a gig' or 'at least I now know that I shouldn't do that...'

Try writing a list. Write down your negative feelings about the gig.. get it all out. Then do a second list of the positive things that resulted from it. If you look, there will be good things that you can take from it.. but you do have to look. It's human nature to wallow in the negative but the positive side is always there, in plain site.. we just have to look for it. smile.gif

Remember the following:

1. You're NOT the only person to suffer it!
2. Unless you actually set yourself on fire, the only person who's gonna remember a bad gig experience is YOU.
3. What you get from a bad gig is a list of items you now know you *need* to focus on prior to you next gig.

#3 is where doing live gigs increases your knowledge of live entertainment. Like studying for a math-test, you never feel "completely ready", but knowing what areas you failed at, whether an unprepared song, a failed solo or incorrect settings on your rig - come to realize that what you think is "prepared for" in the comfort of your home is not the same as "prepared for" when you get up on stage. The more you perform, the more you become aware of what constitutes "well prepared". And the only reason for a bad gig (short of being completely sick or wasted on stage), is being unprepared.

So take #3's lessons and start to focus on those areas that you thought you were prepared for and be better prepared for the next gig.

And to settle your stomach, remember #2. It's difficult, but just push that gig out of your mind. Honestly, how many gigs have you gone to and remember that "mistake(s)" someone else did? You're being too self conscious if you really think others care if YOU blow it on stage?

Push forward! Always keep pushing forward. Don't linger on the past.

keep playing gigs, if you gig- things will go wrong
I got to the point where it felt that if we had a great rehearsal just before the gig , the gig was sure to suck
but looking back they are the fondest memories,lots a laughs
