Thread Name: Sitting Or Standing
Subject: RE: Sitting Or Standing
I found a way of taking the weight off my legs a bit which started when I was more nervous. In variably there is a chair on stage and I just turn it round and perch my bum on the back - most chairs are near enough the right height. The old adrenaline making mucles twitchy was made worse by having the weight of the body adding to the load on those muscles. And it does allow you to be more conversational - being more relaxed.
Sitting down solves that problem but unless you sit bolt upright it restricts the diaphram - however in a singaround situation I sit or stand from where I am at the time - if you don't you don't get to sing often.
