For amateur guitarists, 'performing' generally means participating in a community concert, or playing at a local 'open mike'. Typically, we get to play one or two short pieces. It may not be much, but it's as close to Carnegie as we'll ever get! Could you include in your discussion a few words about the lessons that might be drawn from such modest 'gigs'? Thanks!
