"Miles said "I don't pay you
guys to practice on the bandstand". He wanted them to be ready/prepared
try something new in front of an audience. It is, as it should, be
scary/fun. If your not scared, why should an astute audience care?? "
thanks for making this point...i totally agree...i get nervous just looking at my guitar ;o)
ps---does that door of yours need a backing band?????
