The title basically sums it up. The reason I ask, is that I have a concert in two hours from now, and this has been on my mind before just about every concert I've had for the last, oh, seven years or so.
There seems to be this "feeling" that I've experienced moments before a solo on only two occasions, where the pressure builds, I don't know exactly what's happening, but I almost get light headed, or a veil comes over my eyes, and I put the horn to my face, and before I know it, I hear the song going by....almost as if I went on autopilot, but a BETTER pilot was behind the wheel (joystick?). What happened to my solo? Where did those few seconds go?
Following the concerts, I've had people congratulate me, tell me how great it sounded, but I wouldn't honestly be able to remember it. I've read of it before somewhere, about hidden potential coming in small bursts and an individual not being able to recall them.
What I'm wondering is, has anyone else had this experience? Have you been able to control it to some extent as to where you can utilize this whenever necessary?
