    Which aspect of your playing are you looking to improve? Technical or sound? Do you have a tutor?

    You've answered your own question here. I suggest that you go for a few lessons with an experienced teacher and they will probably be able to help. Even the best players sometimes need a second opinion on their playing, so there's nothing to be ashamed of. I'm not suggesting you have weekly lessons, but the occasional consultation lesson would be a good idea.

    If you want lessons, Graham O'Connor is an excellent teacher. ;) Ask him if he's got any time.

    Playing in a band that you feel you're not ready for, can sometimes be a bit intimidating. But you will improve, along with the players around you. Confidence is what you need. Stop panicking! ;)
