    happens with everyone in the beginning

    start with performing for a small crowd...ur family members, friends, building people etc....once u can play stuff smoothly..and have enuf confidence go for a larger audience

    thats how u'll learn

    practice makes perfect bro like every 1 else ure bound ta have 2 or 3 songs that ure most comfortable with keep practicin them and once u've played them infront of a crowd things get much easier after that
    plus i completely agree with notty lad attitude is a must

    start playing at some park n some places where there r some people u dont know ie to lessen the fear

    the fear is nothing to worry abt i think,.,...

    Man. I cannot stand in a park with my guitar and start singing. I dont want to start getting coins. That will be even more frustrating than the crowdophobia.

    enjoy what ur playing..only then u give the crowd a chance to like ur performance..
    once the crowd starts likin it..the fear,nervousness and what not will all go away..
    and u will be full of adrenaline..before u know it..u will be hopping on one leg and make funny faces at the crowd..
