So, instead of dropping a stick, ruining everything, and failing at the end, I apparently impressed just about everyone when my solo section came around. When I filled, I was very tasteful with clean rolls and better ideas than had previously occured to me before the concert. However, I WAS pouring sweat by the end (seriously, it was getting on my glasses). My friend said I looked like I was high when I walked back to my concert band section (Keith Moon anyone?). I hit the rim once, and came in late for a measure (not that anyone noticed too much), and missed a couple crashes, but I had quite a good first performance on the drum set. Of course, the highlight of the night was in the concert band section when my same friend tossed a stick in the air and didn't catch it (so much for practicing it). I just might enjoy performing this year. It seems under huge pressure, I get some fairly good fill ideas because I'm nervous about being to flashy. The eighth grader actually sped up and made more noticable errors than me. But, I still kept my stick bag half a foot away from me with a couple Pro-Marks sticking out. My hands were drenched before the actual performance, so you can't be too safeSmile Thanks for the advice (especially the "keep it simple")!
