the day after a gig i usually post a short entry on the blog to let you know how it went. however, i had very mixed feelings about my performance on saturday and didn’t really know what to write. i made a couple of mistakes that completely threw me off balance. it was a combination of things. usually i take 15-to 20 minutes before i get upon stage to be by myself and focus. this was impossible at rodeo because the “dressing room” was full of people hanging out, having a good time and not really getting the fact that some people like to prepare. (plus the air was so thick with smoke of the wacky variety) that i was probably half off my head too!)
anyway, anything i say about it, is just an excuse. i think we did a pretty good job in spite of the difficulties and hopefully the audience thought so too.
mistakes are just that, mistakes. and i am going to stop beating myself up about it.
thank you to everyone who said great things to me afterwards. it really is very special regardless of how i felt.
looking forward to getting back in the saddle and doing it better next time…
