Alice Cooper’s touring guitarist, Nita Strauss, recently posted a photo on her Instagram account and gave her fans a professional tip which she learned from personal experience, and could help them be more comfortable and energetic on stage.
Nita Strauss has been touring with Alice Cooper since 2014 and her talents as a guitarist are highly appreciated in the rock scene. She has millions of fans and due to her professional excellence, Nita ranked No. 1 on Guitar World’s list of ‘10 Female Guitar Players You Should Know.’
As you may remember, just some days ago, Nita had made the headlines with her formula for overcoming stage fright. She had said that practicing and building muscle memory is the best tactic for becoming comfortable on stage as it helps you get to a point that you don’t have to think when you’re playing.
However, it seems like there was one more tip she forgot to give. Nita recently posted a photo of herself on her Instagram account in which she is playing her electric guitar passionately while screaming. As it turns out, she was not screaming only because she was having fun but due to being hungry.
In the caption of her post, Nita said she has observed that going on stage a little bit hungry helps her give a more energetic performance. She added that when she’s full, she feels a little bit lazy which prevents her from moving around on the stage. Her pro-tip was highly appreciated by her fans and some of them shared their experiences of going on stage hungry.
Here’s what Nita Strauss said in the caption of her Instagram post:
“Pro tip: going on stage hungry is a good thing! I always find I give a way better, more energetic performance if I’m a little hungry. It keeps you from having the sluggishness of a full meal, plus gives you something to look forward to after the show!!
The only downside: you sometimes end up with pictures like this one 😬”
