    THE DRUG SOLUTION -

    Good, old fashioned oxygen. Deep breathing excersizes before any performance fills your body up with this wonderful chemical. Also gets your breathing right for playing the trumpet.

    I like the way you think GB. Deep breathing exercises can help calm a person down too. Great post, Bravo!!

    I was trying to be funny - which obviously didn't work, probably due to my poor English(?).

    Sorry for that, guys!

    What I was trying to say is:
    "To prevent somebody (like rowuk) from blowing somebody (else) beta blockers may well be of some help.
    They block adrenaline production, eliminate nervousness."

    Not funny? Sorry again!

    Of course drugs are not the first choice solution for anything (not even for a somewhat unrelaxed, corny attitude).

    As far as Bird and Miles are concerned: I know not to be the only one to honestly doubt that "Kind of blue" would have had become that musically impressive (and that well known) if recorded by clean musicians.

    That's part of the tragedy in art and human being.

    What business?

    :shock:

    I'd recommend to play more in front of an audience. Start small: friends, family ect. eventually you'll get used to it more.
    The nerves will never 'dissappear', that's what you get from wanting to do good during a performance.
    on top of that, allways carry a bottle of water with you.

    Hey,

    I certainly do not want my brians blown out by Rowuk. I was just mentioning something that worked for me as I suffered from chronic nervousness. And BTW, I have none of the litany of side affects people have been mentioning. There are side affects of breathing you know, perhaps we should stop doing that.

    For some, being nervous is not an effect of lack of preparation. I agree that that possibilty should be ruled out before seeking medicinal help, which I did and it did not resolve the issue.

    I was overly prepared both in practice, and talent for the performing I was doing and it still was a problem, So, inderol worked for me.

    Shooting down every pharmisuetical option is irresponsible. I mean would we tell an epeliptic to stop taking their meds because it is just bad to be a druggie.

    These things were invented for a reason, within reason.

    Whew! Now I think I get it. Glad to finally understand that you were simply making humor and not advocating drug use to enhance performance. Your entries are typically intelligent and well thought out. Sorry I didn't understand the humor, my bad.
