Thread Name: Stage Presence - How to get it ?
Subject: RE: Stage Presence - How to get it ?
Being comfortable on stage means you feel at home there, that you feel you belong at that moment doing exactly what you're doing. It sounds simple but there it is. Performing at every chance helps, knowing your material helps, being prepared helps, even going through ritual (changing strings before a gig, warming up, etc.) helps. But the main ingredient is loving what you do and knowing that this is what you do best and this stage is where you belong.
