Default Re: Nerves getting the better of Pipers and Drummers?

One method I use [though it won't work in a competition] is to
count all the people in your audience who could do it better
than you.
That was a piece of advice my father gave me en route
to my first public solo performance. i was going to play
for some highland dancers at a local variety show.
All well and good until the third guy that I looked at
was my instructor and the P/S in the band.
I wasn't aware that his daughter was going to be one of the dancers!
I made it through all right, but it did kind of make me
question my dad's wisdom. But you do that a lot as a teenager anyway.
