if you are more of an extrovert and know your stuff, i can imagine you long to showcase to the world with abandon. be grandiose, let it flow. must be a darn sexy feeling:)
now, what if you are born shy and does not particularly like a crowd sitting in the dark with beady eyes all on you? how do you manage to overcome the psychological/physical/emotional/whatever barriers? do you just block out everything and do your own thingy? do you try to engage the whole house? how do you manage to enjoy the misery???
here is a curve ball at ya: imagine you are doing a solo, supposely for 1 hour. after 30 mins, it is decided that you must stop playing and TALK for the rest of the hour. can you manage that and what are you going to say?:)
