Going solo

Views: 45

About 6 or 7 years ago I did a solo gig.  I dearly loved it.  But, somewhere in there I started doing duos.  This fear of playing alone crept in.  I got offered a solo gig once in a while and I turned it down.  I played a trio about 8 or 9 months ago and When the other 2 took a break, I played alone.  I forgot how nice it felt to do the stuff only I can do.  So on Cinco de Mayo I booked a solo gig and it ended up being a duo.  2 weeks later I finally got to play alone.  I was hesitant at first, a little shaky(I had 3 hours to do), and it was hot.  After the 1st few songs I hit my stride and got comfortable, talked to the crowd, of course I had to give them trivia.  It worked. I had a ball.  Some old friends showed up unexpectedly and it was great.  I caught myself talking to them too much and made a concerted effort to entertain the entire audience.  The few requests I got were from "older" people and thankfully I knew the songs.  All in all I'm ready to do it again.  My health has been bad and the heat has been unbearable, but soon I will go back and this time with a lot more confidence.
