I'm wondering if anyone would be willing to take the task of writing an article for iBM on dealing with Stage Fright. My choice would be an article from someone who had a significant stage fright problem, and was able to overcome it, and could give some suggestions to us. Its obviously not as entertaining to watch a show in which the entertainer is nervous, even if he has excellent chops (SRV early in his career comes to mind). You want to see someone who is willing to bare their soul emotionally. I myself have never done any gigging, and don't know if I ever will, but I see this as a potential future problem for me. Heck, I play much worse than normal if I'm just taping myself, only for me to listen to later. So if Guni, or James, or Eric has ever faced such a problem, it'd be useful to hear your experience. Or perhaps some other IBreathe member who hasn't written an article for us before could take this on. I'm sure Guni would let ya.
