Thread Name: Help : tricks for a nervous throat?
Subject: Help : tricks for a nervous throat?
A terrible thing is happening!!!
I find that when I am especially nervous my voice will waver on long notes & is not so under control - throat feels constricted. Does anyone have a magic trick to counteract this (other than 'don't be nervous')?
This happened last night because I was singing my own songs for the first time and was extra-twitchy. So then the delivery wasn't as good as I'd hoped. Damn!
Any tips/tricks to keep the throat loose and relaxed despite nervousness would be much appreciated. Or I could just invite the pub round to my bedroom, where I was of course singing exquisitely..... :)
