Its fair to say the guys that played this gig did a real good job. Lots of great songs played and some real tasty performances.
I was so disappointed in my performance. I had a total howler! Went on stage to sing Maggie may, I didn’t take time to set my guitar up correctly, so when we started I couldn’t hear what I was playing. I had the chord chart there to help me but as I was looking down at the chords, looking at the lyrics I thought to myself, I’m I playing the right chord, then as I was doing that I forgot where I was and made a big mistake with the chords, then I started think Oh my god! I made a big mistake there, because I was thinking too much about that I made another then I thought awwww nawwww. Ive fecked up here, Annette and Dot is here, so is everyone else aaahhhhhh!!!!!! That was the end of that!!!
I came of stage and should have been pro about it and put it down to a learning experience and made sure it never happened again, but instead of that I went back stage shaking my head not think that everyone could see me… then I came out and as I passed Annette and apologiesed for my mistakes, what was I thinking!!!!
To make matters worse I had pulled the plug on my confidence for the next performance of highway to hell. That didn’t go as well as I liked as well coz I fecked the words up!!!! Disaster for me…
The just of it is I spent so much time complaining and condemning others for not showing up to practice that I spent so much energy on that instead of nailing my part, far to cocky at the end of the day
Massive lesson I have learnt, just a shame it was in front of everyone. I need to pick myself up from this and move on, support others when its not going well, encourage the team to get the job done and most importantly priorities my work load to ensure I do the right amount of research and practice for myself so this doesn’t happen again…
Il be praying to Lemmy the night!
