I noticed slash and dave murray (iron maiden) while playing solos lift their guitar vertically and play. Im wondering how they do this since, if I am moving my fretting hand, how i hold the guitar in the air? Is it resting the guitar in the pelvis?

Rest it on your leg or whatever you find comfortable.

Not so hard if you live in space, but here on earth GRAVITY kinda prevents it from just hanging vertically at your side.
Just rest it on your leg or something. Besides, they probably dont do it live, esp of they have to move there hand around a lot

Well basically sperm is alive right, so how come you don't see it move around on its own in a condom or whatever?

When you do a bend, bend with your fingers, but move the neck up with your hand.

use the strap to take most of the weight then push the neck to get it higher if you need it. It's a big deal if you're trying to play and hold the guitar up at the same time but tilting it slightly shouldn't cause too many problems.

also, take some weight on your leg if needs be.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

Yeah you can just slide the strap back and/or rest it on your leg. It's pretty easy if you try it, and pretty important since tilting up activates star power.

i saw dave murray do it a few times back in june. its not really that hard.

you just bend backwards a little bit and rest the guitar on your pelvis. u could also put your foot on a chair or something (kinda acts like putting your foot on a monitor) its kinda self explanatory if you play around with it a little bit.
