I’ve been in two performance environments over the last two weekends.
One of which I was performing on guitar, the second I was engineering microphones.
Both environments were fairly cold during what has been a rainy few days here in Wales.
When performing, it’s important to be physically as comfortable as possible and prepared to move your fingers in a way that can fulfil the requirements of what it is you are playing.
Sometimes, giving yourself time to ensure you have enough layers on, have something warm to drink and to get moving is of the upmost importance.
Getting the time in to ensure you are warmed up, whatever environment you’re in, will help you get the best out of you.
