Ok, so today was our Halloween Recital at my music school, so yes I dressed up like a cowgirl. I was hecka scared, and I kept counting in my head to calm down because for some reason, my guitar teacher refused to tell me when I would go. I ended up being the finale, so of course I was terrified cuz 1.) the finale was always the best musician at the school 2.) I only had two weeks to perfect the songs and 3.) right before me was this really really good pianist. Halfway through the recital, I asked my guitar teacher if he was playing rhythm, and he said no it was just me and the track. I always thought people who played with the track were “cheating” because the music would drown out their amp, so I decided that instead of playing percisely like usual, I would just play loud and proud, because if anything was gonna drown out, it would be the track. So without telling my teacher, the minute I got on stage I cranked my volume up. I also didn’t tell him I was going to use my whammy bar or do the slide ending. At the last chord, I accidentally flung my guitar pick, which my guitar teacher of course thought was on purpose to add the “rock n’ roll” style. Either way, I was smiling like an idiot, my parents were proud, my brother was proud, my best friend was proud, my guitar teacher was proud, and even the owner was proud. So yeah, just thought I’d share it. Yes there are mistakes, but it’s probably one of the few performances that I felt accomplished for.
And Tumblr refused to upload the video, so I’ll see if I can get it up tomorrow. But yeah, good day. :D
