I always forget to breath when I first start a gig.
There are so many things to think about when you are gigging. I know that breathing should come naturally but for me it isn’t so simple. I breath enough to stay alive (obviously) but when you are singing you need to control your breathing and I forget. So, my first few songs are rushed and I struggle to get my words out. It’s just one more thing to think about. Although, you would think that breathing should be high on my list of things to remember.
