I played my first open mic 4 months into my guitar journey . I did play with a keyboard player. The next month he was traveling so AI went solo. This year I have only played solo. I always try to bring 3 new songs to,the open mic which forces me to learn three songs. I used to use backing tracks but my last couple open mics last year, I went with no backing tracks. Yeah soloing can be nerve wracking, but all the fellow performers were great supporter. Only once did get harassed by a singer from a band, but it wasn’t at an open mic. Just remember that all those you play with were also beginners at one time.
