In my house when im alone i can play pretty decently even if i record myself to hear myself play later but the second there is another presence i clam up and squeak like a little mouse...

Happens with people, or cameras. Today i was in the shop run by teenagers that happens to have an open vault full of $20k instruments you can play freely. birthday-cake

Oooh, sounds amazing right? Squeeeeeeeeeeeek! Ugh..lumpy-2134

Oh, i need to record myself for the traveler? No problem i do it all the time should go smoothly to post on the board....  squeeeeeeeek!

 

Wtf over?

I'm the same way! I can sometimes play just fine in front of people, or camera, but it's a rare occurrence, lol. 

I'm jealous that your shop has a case of instruments like that! I love love love my fiddle, but I would love to try out others just for kicks. But I'm sure the same thing would happen to me... the song I know so well would just fly out of my head, my fingers would suddenly refuse to find their mark, and my bow would probably go crooked... I guess this because that's all the things that like to happen during my lessons every week, lol. I'm at least slowly getting better with my video recordings, but I think it's because I just go into it expecting the worst and then I live up to my expectations, lol.

I so know know what you mean. I've been working on a song..and I wanted to share my progress with a violin friend... UGH...

I think they thought.. "yea... sure... it sounds the same..." 

Frustrating .. Frustrating... 

But we will get this.. we will do this.. we can we can. I know we can...

No kidding!   I've just gotten used to the husband being on the other side of the wall, lol (it's been about a year now). Playing in front of someone live isn't going to happen anytime soon.   Videos aren't a help either, lol, I just made one for the St. Patricks day thread... it took me 20 times, because No 1. I was shaking like a leaf (for no reason, I mean it's not like it's live, right?!) and I kept messing everything up.

I'm glad I'm not alone in this. smile

It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself. Johann S.Bach

annyj Very much not alone 🙂 I have given in to the fact that when I get in front of a camera I'm going to mess up, lol. I notice I've gotten better about ignoring it, though, so I am hopeful that one day that lens staring at me with it's judging glare won't phase me anymore, lol.
