Note to self: Never play in a band, might be shown my recordings  :P

I'm reckon you're self critical enough to make your self a great band player.

There's a lot of good sense being posted here.

My next comment may sound off topic. but is really quite relevant. On Saturday we did a big show (Royal Cornwall). Lots of punters, lots of noise. The band went electric together for the first time. Turns out that they could hear my melodeon playing clearly for the first time (:) Went like a dream. I did plenty of dad dancing (aka "stepping as I play") but I did it because I like to, not because I had to. Considering doing this for every gig...and practice.

me thinks that Jesse may have been at the sherbet, otherwise known as 'fall over juice' posting the same thing twice!

Ha! I was trying to edit my post and it looks like I hit Quote instead. :|bl

In my morris days  I felt the dancers and musicians performed   somewhat better  when we   played  at country pubs  particularly  if provided with an adequate supply  of aforementioned  liquid refreshment   on the house!
...which cross-links neatly to another current thread: Jimbo's wonderful example of May Reel in the June tune of the Month!  :|glug

Try the Heel-toe technique ? there's many ways to tap :D if tapping is messing you up do so standing up and bend your knees instead of tapping or move your hip hells bang your head if that will help <-- doesn't help me :D I wish one day i can headbang to the jingle :D

at least you are not suggesting  doing anything with ones private parts!

that's what it all boils down to :D
