Nevertheless, my last waking thought the night before auditions was of the song "How Can I Be." More specifically, that it would be a good fit for the talent show. And so I adapted this song for guitar and strummed my little heart out onstage. I know, I know, I'm basically a rockstar. No autographs, please. But you can watch my performance (free of charge, you're very welcome):
I was so nervous, I wrote the lyrics on my wrist... Just in case. But then I got so wrapped up in checking the lyrics that I forgot the chord progression. I thought about writing that on my wrist too, but I was running out of legible space. Bonus points to whoever can figure out where I forgot the words and thanked the heavens above for my paranoid foresight. All in all, an accomplishment.
