  • If you're sure that you're going to embarrass yourself, pretend being sick and don't go. It's clear that you don't have good psychology to do this, today.

  • I know I shouldn't say this, but my mum used to play the fiddle. She always found that one glass of wine would relax her enough to cope with anything. It doesn't work for everyone, but might just help.
    And I don't mean get p****d either!!

  • Simplify it, skip the hard parts, replace them with something simpler.

    • Also, if it's above the break, drop it down an octave. Practice it at a quarter time until you get it. Then practice it at half time until you get it. Work your way up slowly to full time.

  • Try not to stress it. Think positive.
