Played a show this afternoon, a high school “Alternative Strings” class that plays a few songs before the orchestra concerts. I’m a school resource officer at the school and occasionally joins the kids on one song at their concert. Layla was the song, and I had been practicing a bit and was comfortable with it. BUT, I lost track of the verses and when we were supposed to continue on with the main riff repeating, I went back into another verse..... I of course realized immediately and picked it back up after a measure and we finished strong. Me being me though, it is really bugging me. I honestly feel like I let the kids down by jacking up the song. I know live music can be tricky waters, and I’m far from seasoned at it but that doesn’t lessen the embarrassment level any. I realize this is a dumb thing to beat myself up over but....I know, rock and roll, right?
