Check out the “Let it Snow” Xmas 2020 Group youtube project!”
@augustoad What a set list! You're a prog man I see. I did a double take when I saw Three and Coheed and Cambria. Would love to hear performances of this set
I've never played live for anyone, and only a handful of times even on skype in a group or for an online teacher. I'm just a beginner so it will be quite awhile play for an audience. Look forward to hearing how it all goes!

@Shell , yes I'm a prog man. Hard to see people who listen to those bands as well nowadays, at least for me. XD
It has been raining like crazy these days, so I didn't have the opportunity to go out and play yet... I guess I'll have to wait until next week and see how the weather goes. Besides, I'm now taking driving lessons, 3h30 a day, and no longer have a lot of time for my stuff. Oh joy. I'll try to see about this weekend.

@Jacques What a great story about your performance... and the girl virtuosos.... and how she gazed into your eyes as she played.
What a great motivation. What a great story to share. We really have nothing to loose and everything to gain by performing and playing.
I see myself playing for others this year. I am not nearly as shy as I used to be.
Awesome story and as Barry and Pierre have mentioned many times, we don't need to be concerned with how others feel.

Another good thing about playing in the streets is the pressure to perform
better. There are complete studies on the effects of stress and performance. In summary: there is a fine line while in a stressful environment where performance increases and where anxiety takes over. If the environment becomes to stressful it's time to pack up and try again another day.
I know now this is true because something with the ego pushes one to perform better when in public, but can easily turn into a not so good thing where your performance begins decline.
an anomaly of character. Stepping outside of the comfort zone opens new realms of possibilities. Enhanced physical and cognitive prowess. Et cetera
