As part of my rigorous prep for my solo set, I took the stage at an open mic last week to play four tunes that I have worked up. It was the first time I played an open mic and the first time I performed my solo pieces without a laptop or backing tracks.
I had a great time. It was good to play stuff I didn’t have 100% polished out in the world. I met some new musicians that I wouldn’t normally run into otherwise.
