    Hi,
    Does anyone deal with feeling shaky when nervous? Any tips or ideas how to fix or help it?

    Oh, you bet! I would shake uncontrollably when I was nervous. After a few years of crashing and burning, I learned to channel my adrenaline. Once I knew I could perform without any aids, I then tried beta-blockers. It helped relax my body which gave me more confidence to take musical risks. I was still mentally nervous but I could handle that over crazy shaking!

    P.S. I also worked with an excellent therapist/counselor through my college years for performance anxiety.
