I know what you mean. I used to get nervous as well while recording and it would often hold me back..
But just keep doing it and when you're used to the "recording-mode" it will probably go away after a while smile.gif

I don't have a problem with being nervous while recording anymore, although there's lot of other problems laugh.gif

Yeah, I have the same problem, it's weird tho, it's not like your performing to a live audience or anything biggrin.gif

Yeah it is a normal thing man.but ion time you will relax more and more.

It is like that always. When under pressure to play it good it doesn't sound too good because it's not honest and pure. It can be perfect in technique but it doesn't have that "extra thing". Because of this, usually the first takes are the best, and later on if you see you are doing one same take more than 5-10 times, stop and rest a bit and do something else, because you will get nowhere pushing it.

Not nervous really, but tense and the messes the recording up. I start thinking of lightening up and stop thinking about what to play and when I start thinking about doing things right instead I start making errors laugh.gif

After 14 years of recording myself, i still mess up on the first takes nomatter how easy what i'm recording is smile.gif
It's not nervousness though, it's more that i get tense and want to do it perfectly, which never works.
The best results comes when you relax.
