A wiser man than me  once said in order to conquer your fear you must face it. Well I have many fears as I’m sure most of you do too. One that definitely makes the top ten is performing in public. Any of my friends will tell you that in the office or on a night out I like nothing more than to talk crap, be loud and basically be the (unintentional) centre of attention. HOWEVER. When it comes to performing in front of people i.e. I have consciously asked that your attention is focussed completely and utterly upon me, I freeze like the proverbial rabbit in the headlights. I have crippling panic attacks.

The thing is, I love playing the guitar. I also (privately) enjoy singing. This is not to say I am any good. However on the off chance that people may want to listen to me on an open mic night I don’t want to be hindered by a stupid irrational fear hampering me when asked.

Enough of my gibber gabber. I’ve taken the first step towards rockstardom and purchased a video camera. Below is my first recording. It’s by a band called the Smashing Pumpkins. It’s a little depressing but I love it.
