So playing a show a bandmate started cracking jokes on the faces I make when I solo. I really never noticed it but paying a little more attention I tend to slightly lip the solos and make certain faces on bends, sweeps, and legato runs. They haven't let up on the jokes since then. But I notice ALOT of guitarists do this that are pretty famous and was wondering:

Do you make face expressions to the solos of songs or songs in general and when did you notice?

Sometimes but when using a wah my mouth kinda goes "WWAAAHH" along with it.

Yeah I do it all the time. For example: when I play something really heavy and slow I make this face

If I play something speedy and thrashy I do this

And when I try to play anything by Malmsteen I do this
#5
Oh I never thought about wah faces yet.. I have a gig tonight I will have to check that out lol. I tend to use wah alot in legatos so it will be interesting
#6
I scrunch up my face up on bends. That's about it. How much scrunching depends on the bend. So if I'm playing Sweet Child Of Mine, for example, the solo makes it fall off.

ALL the time.

I have like a wah-wah/chewing face. And I don't even realise it. Apparently it's horrible.

^Me too once I was jammin with my band and I was soloing (cuz me, the dual lead guitarist, and the bassist will yell at each other randomly to start soloing) and I drooled all over my hand and strings and I went to do a pinch and my fingers and pick were wet and the pick flew out and went into the bassists mouth lol


edit: 2 posts up, I got beat

When i really get into my drums, i end up biting down on the gums above my upper and lower lip. Sometimes when i get off i can taste blood.

Definitely not a good habit
#14
When my band mates notice they make it sound bad - they always say I need to get more animated, so this would technically be animation.. The crowd kind of enjoys it too I think I mean why else would Herman Li always look like hes gonna give a BJ

It's not intentional, but yes, I do make solo faces. Some of them are quite funny, apparently.
