Maybe it's a singer thing...

Katie seems to have the same problem as me when it comes to singing in front of lots of people. Maybe it's because we aren't show-offs, we just like singing? Admittedly, she's a lot further down the singing route than I am, given that she's actually in a band, as opposed to just-someone-who's-done-karaoke-a-couple-of-times.

I wonder if it's to do with the common perception that you can either sing or you can't, rather than it being something that requires practise, and so is viewed differently from instruments. Or maybe it's that it's easier to assess how good you are when you're playing an instrument, but not when you're singing ('cos you don't really listen to yourself when you sing). Or maybe it's all a confidence thing.

I don't know, it's just bloody annoying when you're afflicted :-) Answers on a stuck-down email please...
