Stage Fright

Hey Buddy! - I saw you for the first time about 15 years ago at ISGC in St Louis. I have been a guitar, trumpet and bass player for about 32 years. I switched (partly)over to steel a little over 2 years ago and have fallen in love with it. I practice anywhere from 3-5 hours a day, depending on job commitments etc. I can practice for hours and get specific phrasings down tight. The problem arises when I play on stage with my western swing band. Quite often, I lose the confidence, tighten up and I can only hit about 50% of what I know I can do. The question is: Do you ever remember this happening to you in your early years? How did you overcome it if you did? You're still the best! Thanks for your inspiration to so many players. Kirk
