Wednesday Night at Sol Grill

So I went down to Sol Grill last night for the open mic that Dusty runs. It’s a really cool restaurant with a nice atmosphere. I had convinced myself that with my Spanish guitar and some more ballady songs, I’d do fine. But I was out of my element and the crowd was super sparse so I doubt I’ll play there again.

I have all sorts of frustrations and doubts when I don’t feel like I played up to my standards. This morning, I thought so much has to do with that audience factor. If I’d have had anyone to laugh with me when I flubbed the lyrics, it would have been a fun experience we all share. But when you flub lyrics and no one cares, it’s tough.
