Yes, it’s funny how differently we can respond in different performance domains. It’s as if our minds do some quick calculations of probability, and try to decide whether our resources/abilities will meet the perceived demands of the situation. If chances are good, then we don’t get too nervous. If the probability is lower, we get proportionately more anxious.
I’ll bet though, that you are doing specific things or utilizing specific strategies in your professional life that enable you to present with confidence, which could also be applied to your guitar performances…
