That's a big thrill, to be able to go from self-conscious to owning the performance. I feel that way with my button accordion. In the beginning I played really out of the way places where nobody was because I felt so self-conscious. I was invited to play a few paying gigs, including a restaurant, but I turned them down because I was scared out of my mind.

Today I'll play anywhere, and I also volunteer my playing if it will enhance someone else's show or charity event.
