Performance Jitters, Liquid Courage, & Ice Cream Sandwiches
This week's Live Lesson is all about performing tips, food, and drinking. Aldrine starts with some feedback for a student review, which leads to a discussion on the use of pre-performance liquid courage. Aldrine shares his thought on drinking and eating before stepping on stage. He also explains how he uses his breathing to improve his playing. To top off the drinking talk, Aldrine answers a question about playing the intro to Margaritaville. The guys go on a little ice cream sandwich detour while Aaron reminisces about the good old days, and they wrap things up with some tips for learning the Bob's Burgers theme song.
