Well....made a drive with my husband to Murfreesboro at midnight to get into the hall to play on stage for him and a few friends. I didn't take my beta blockers and I was exhausted, so maybe that is why I was so terribly TERRIBLY nervous? I recorded all of it and the shakiness doesn't sound through. The hall covered it up, but the curtains were all open and the sound was very wet and verby. I'm sure it showed visually. And the Ysaye was way too fast and out of tune and wrong notes. I started with that one. One of my friends is playing it too and she was there and I think that freaked me out a little bit. Anyhow. It was a good thing to do. It was also really cold in there, so I didn't start sweating right away, and my fingers were cold. Mostly just shaky though. I wasn't expecting that. I'm going to get nervous as much as possible this week and play for people. I am going to cut the Bach out of the recording and put it on my website tomorrow. Have to go rehearsen again, so I don't know if it will be morning or evening that I get to that. But I'll let anyone interested in critiquing it do so. Hm. It is after two am now and I have to get up at 8 so I suppose I should start winding down. (wind wind wind.....slow slow....ahhhh) SCREAM!!!! K. Well. Sals, JW
