Hi guys. It happens so frequently that when you are rehearsing, you can deliver the songs much more genuinely with respect to emotions as compared to while performing the set itself. Being a songwriter and doing more solo performances, this aspect is very important to me. Naturally, because of a lot more happening during the actual performance, it brings your focus down from the content of the song, even if very little.What do you do to keep your emotions up while performing?
I find that if I’m feeling too emotional in the moment while I’m playing, I don’t play very well. That goes for nerves, of course, but it is also true of intense feelings of exhilaration, or poignancy. For example, when I get excited, or thrilled, about a piece, I tend to rush and lose rhythm.
