You're there just about to go on stage and you're feeling under prepared. You're worrying if you will forget the lyrics and what to say in between songs. It was a last minute gig and you haven't practiced much recently. Well the thing is if you're a singer or musician that wants to and enjoys playing live there's always a chance that a last minute gig may come your way. This is why it's always good to practice and rehearse your songs and your set so you're gig ready whenever the opportunity comes.

It doesn't matter if you're just starting out or if you're an experienced performer it can happen to us all.
Yes I'm talking about forgetting your lyrics when on stage performing live. In the video below you will see famous singers forget the words to songs but watch how they deal with the situation. They continue with the performance and even endear and engage the audience even more.

Guest blog post written by Lily O'Brien from her A Little Bit Of Everything blog
This is her view on what the Bedford music scene is like.

Before we begin delving into the back-catalogue of Bedford’s music scene, I’d like to clarify something. With the exception of a few performances in musical theatre (strictly chorus parts only), and the occasional, gloriously loud and obnoxious, shout-along to the car radio, my musical talents are relatively limited. I can carry a tune, but that’s about it. I am not one of the very many local talents around Bedford, but an observer, purveyor and admirer of those that are. This article is not being written from the mind of someone who has first-hand experience of performing on any of the many stages primed and ready to display the audio delights of solo artists and bands alike. It is by a person who has been lucky enough to be surrounded by musically blessed friends and, as a result, been able to observe their progress and success with a keen eye, and is maybe well placed to advise any keen up-and-coming talent on the best steps to take to get your name – and your sound- out there.
