So I've finally done a public performance, albeit quite short. I had a presentation for my college English class, and it was on lutherie. So at the beginning I performed the first 40 seconds of Bohemian Rhapsody flawlessly and utilized the uke throughout, with a little extra song afterwards at the behest of some classmates :D . It was a fantastic confidence booster, and I cannot wait to actually start doing real performances now.

So what were your first performance experiences like?

start performing at open mic nights.


As for first performance, it was Red River Vally, Down in the Valley and Camptown Ladies all performed on G, C and D7 on an arch top Harmony acoustic in elementary school. All the girls started talking to me after that and I knew from that dat what http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlPjxz4LGak learned at a later time. Ric
