    What: UU Open Mic
    When: 1 pm HST May 30 2018
    Link to Open Mic: https://zoom.us/j/4246877023 (if you are performing, please show up a little earlier so we can test your set up)

    Meeting ID: 424-687-7023

    See this forum thread for links to download the software we’ll be using for the open mic

    Just a couple of notes for these open mics. There’s no requirement on the type of song you’d like to play. You can sing and play one of the songs from our ‘Songs Made Easy’ sessions, or you can play an instrumental piece. The important thing is you use this performance as motivation to help you practice something and get better at it!

    I’d love to do this as I have many things I could show off that you don’t know I can do yet. However, this time slot of 1:00 HST last day of the month, always falls in the middle of the afternoon on a work day. 🙁

    Thanks Ryan, I may even try this, because it is a show day holiday for me. Rare occasion..?

    Thanks everyone — had a good time and these are really helping me get better at playing live. I feel it’s just like any other skill that takes practice and my nerves are slowly getting better each time I do an open mic of some sort. Even turning the camera on to record a video makes me nervous even though I know i can just delete it if I mess up.

    I’ve also found that not only is it about getting used to playing live, but also getting used to compensating for nervousness — like being prepared for sweaty hands that don’t slide on the neck like they normally do, or forgetting where you are in a song and just going with it trying to get back on track as smoothly as possible.

    Mahalo and Aloha,
    Alan

    I’m bummed I missed it. I remembered hours too late, right before bed. But I’ve put the next one in my calendar with notifications so no forgetting. I like that I got to see the recording though. Good playing everyone!
