My bands playing a show on April 7th. We've been big in the local scene for almost a year. Only thing diffrent about this show is that I'm on guitar instead of vocals. I'm very wild with my live show and I liked vocals because I could do more stuff without being restricted by an instrument. SO I would like some cool tricks to do with my guitar. I can't do flips because I have no guitar locks. I play hardcore by the way.

You don't need to be flashy to have good stage presence.

Not sure about most people, but personally I go to a gig to hear the music, not to see some kid showing off physically.


But to help, maybe you could do it naked?

Lower the guitar on the strap as far as you can, spread your legs, and lean down and headbang a lot. Also.. . hardcore? So. Try hardcore dancing with just your feet? I've seen bands do it. But Lord do I dislike the hardcore scene. Even though my band is in it? Haha. Love the music, just not the scene.

Anyways. If you have another guitar in the band, go over to him and do the fretting for him while he does the strumming on his guitar. This trick always gets good reviews for my band. Especially guitar solos. Try it out!

I agree with not being a damn fool. Good playing > acting crazy.

Of course, both > either.

Have a competition with the vocalist for attention, TS, Adam D style.

Seriously, any stage antics in that video that don't get your guitar destroyed. There are a couple, you just gotta look really hard.

numchuck dance like buckethead

Ok, heres what you do. You go out and buy a skin-tight leather outfit. Not just any outfit. Short shorts, leather jacket, the whole go. Pretty much dress like Freddy Mercury, except in leather.
Go get a special hat. Not a top hat, or one of those baggy hats, or a beany, or something someone else has thought of before. We're talking like a sombrero. Bitches love sombreros.
You're going to need to need to pull a Rammstein to get the crowd pumped. Everyone loves Rammsteins stage antics. So, you can either pay a ****ton for pyrotechnics, or you can go out and buy a dildo and swing it around slapping people whenever you get the opportunity. Preferably get pyrotechnics.
And stage dive. Every. Single. Song.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

jump/run around and head bang a lot, hold your guitar up high right before breakdowns and drop it down when the break down starts, mosh with your band mates, and dive into the drum set at the end of the last song.

EDIT: play in nothing but your boxers

the song isn't that great, but go to 3:30 and watch what the guitarist does with his guitar spin. he does it with such great style

Play behind you head or with your teeth thats always a crowd pleaser. I saw a band once where the bass player and both guitarists played behind their heads for part of a song and the crowd loved it. That or get some straplocks and do some cool 80's style guitar flips ala cinderella.

This is so what you should do. Whats funny is when someone trys to stage dive and the crowd parts like the red sea I think slash had it happen to him once if I remember right.
