doesn’t seem to be a problem for me anymore. 6 years ago

I’ve learned the guitar, and i very much enjoy playing. I’ve also written some songs, and i think they are lyrically pretty good. My problem is that i become to self concious about what people are going to think of my work. I honestly don’t think my voice is terrible… i’ve just always been to concerned about what people think of me. 6 years ago
I don’t think this will ever be as big of a problem. It makes me happy. :) 6 years ago
It’s amazing! So, I went to a stage audition at a small theatre in town… for a musical, and I have never sang in public, besides kareoke. They made me sing happy birthday in three different pitches. Tyson says I was clear and hit every note perfectly (I know, it’s just the happy birthday song, but I was nervous and shaking like a tree leaf in a rain storm!!) – He would be honest, too, because I am honest about my critiques with him and he has been harsh with me before. It’s how you learn! So… I’m in the play, probably will be playing different characters here and there with lots of singing!!!! If this doesn’t get me out of my shell, I don’t know what will. But one thing I know, when I left, I wanted to keep singing all the way home -I sorta did, then hopped on the piano for the rest of the night once I got home. :) Life is good! 6 years ago
infront of a friend. It wasn’t too bad. Gotta keep going at it. 7 years ago
does Kareoke count? I got the courage after a couple of sips of beer and sang Norah Jones’ “Come Away With Me” at a local Mexican Restaurant. My boyfriend was smiling, and I didn’t die infront of the maybe 10 people that were there. I had to do it because I knew I would beat myself up on the way home id I didn’t. Good – so that’s a start, now I have to keep going and doing these kinds of theings until I get more comfortable singing around people. 7 years ago
So I think I just signed up to be a keyboardist for a friend’s band while they go on tour for 3 weeks this summer… 7 years ago
My grandpa said he would help me fix my sutain pedal. I need to change out the wooden rod that lifts the pads off the strings. It’s warped over the past 100 years. Also, there is a hammer that doesn’t hit the string hard enough when I’m playing gently. He said he would fix that, too!!! Now I’m excited. Maybe I should have it tuned, but I don’t want to tune it (it’s not that bad now) and then move 2 months later – it’ll be out of tune again.
Either way, I’m happy. 7 years ago
I play the piano. I have been doing so for a long time, but I cannot sight read music. (Unless it’s for flute, which I haven’t played in ages.) I love all kinds of music, but my favorite songs give me goose bumps. I can feel the music through my body. If I had a dream job it would probably be a musician, a performer. I love classical, techno, jazz, rock, hip-hop – really I love everything, but what strikes a chord, what makes my mind soar into imagination… it’s the mellow stuff. Where else can I escape, relax and paint my own pictures? I can be philosophical and in my world and think and think and think with no one to tell me how I need to think. I can really only play infront of my boyfriend. Sometimes when it’s sunny, I’ll be messing around with chords and he’ll lay down by the piano, in the sunlight and sleep while I contemplate. I’ve been known to be a worrying person. I feel so free, though. It’s difficult for me to play or sing infront of people because, honestly, I’m a little scared of what they might think. What if they shoot my dreams and hopes down? I guess I will never know unless I try. I want to get a nice keyboard. I was thinking about a Korg Triton, but now I’m not so sure… I just want something that I can plug into a computer and play different sounds and make these moving landscapes… I did sing in Japan, though. Everyone went to kareoke and there was this guy there with my class. He was one of the youngest students, yet he was very sure of himself. He told me jst to do it… like a pep talk. I sung my heart out and I had one of the best times of my life singing kareoke in Japan! So, that’s one hurdle… a few more to go and maybe I’ll have a little more self confidence to collaborate with someone or to actually record something. You never know until you try, right?
