Just curious to how many of you avoid going for things live in worry of staying in tune? I spend a lot of time with the bow and numerous exercises to work on intonation daily. Some days are good, some not so but still educational. There are definitely times during performances where I hear things and go for them irregardless but of course it doesn't always work out tuning wise. I make the adjustments and make mental notes for next practice session but it made me think if sometimes it just is better to play of safe. Most of the music I've been playing is original and the leaders seem to prefer to let it happen but listening back to gigs all I ever hear are the missed notes, even if its on a night where it only is a few it drives me nuts. I've listened to a lot of live discs and hear guys miss all the time but love them trying to get it out but it just kills me on a personal level when its me. Just curious to if you limit yourself for safety's sake or just go.
