I played for some people today who were not members of my family (coworkers who expressed an interest who are also musically inclined). Basically everything fell apart at the seams, figuratively.

I normally sit when playing. In this instance I was standing.

I was so nervous I was wobbly on my feet, my heart raced, and I couldn't do anything right. It was awful. I have been playing now for two months. It sounded like me at half the time I've spent.

Any suggestions? Or will just regular exposure to my "victims" be the only remedy?

If you normaly played sitting you should have done so. More practace. Did I mention more practace?

I knew a pro dulcimoo player that barfs prior to each and every performance he gets so nearvious.

Practace then start playing for your friends
