I wasn't sure whether to put this here or musicians top, so I just went with this... sorry if it's the wrong forum

I was wondering how to move around on stage when live. When I try at home, I feel stupid, and I was just wondering how to be more lively on stage.

You can look badass just standing still.. but it depends what kind of presence you control.

Either way... just let it reflect your personality.. It will come naturally through time. I mean... I don't think guitarist stand in front of the mirror....

"How can I look badass on stage..." <- that is the Malmsteen, and look how that turned out X.x

+1. You don't have to hop around like those crazy kids in those emocore bands and swing your instrument around your head.... no.

Just walk around while playing and being super into-it. 1- it looks kool cuz ur practically possessed by the music, and 2- it'll get you ready for more movements.

Then once you can walk around and look around and move your guitar without messing up, you can try skipping around and banging your head hella hard if you want.

You don't necessarily have to move around, but make it look like you're enjoying yourself. That energy reflects on the audience.
