My fiancee heard recordings of me singing and wants me to sing to her. I don't really have any good reason not to but I have kind of an irrational fear of singing to her for some reason. I'm not sure why, but I'd like to get over the fear and sing for her. Anyone have any advice on the situation?
just do it, man.
i used to work in the music industry. and, yeah, it's easy to sing to a crowd. but doing it right in front of just one person, one person you know, is always way more daunting.
no real tricks though. you just gotta start and eventually the anxiety goes away.
i suppose you could try looking away from her. kind of kills the intimacy but it might help ease the process.
I think it would totally help if you started by singing from another room first, like in the kitchen while she's in the living room? And then gradually in the same room, til you can sing in front of her. Talent should always be celebrated and shared, but I know it's difficult when the person you're sharing with /means/ something to you.
