So here's my problem.
During a 3 hour gig. No matter how many times I take a sip of water, my mouth is constantly dry, like so dry it's almost hard to pronounce properly what I'm singing. I've heard of things like lollies and mints etc helping but I'm wondering if that does anything bad to your throat. Does anyone else have this problem? And does anyone have any recommendations?
The other problem I have, which only occurs when it's cold, is my fingers are too cold to respond properly. I'm strumming along fine, then get to a picking section of a song, and my fingers just won't do it, I have to resort to strumming lightly. It's like the coldness is making the impulses in my nerves slow down.
Anything that anyone can suggest for that?
