So, I'm sure this has been done. But I don't only mean cute tricks you can do with your guitar or drumsticks.
But things to say during breakdowns to get the crowd more into it.
Things to say in between songs, things like that. I don't have strap-locks so I can't do things like guitar-spins.
But yeah, you get the idea.

If it helps, I'm in a metal band.

Help me out?
Also the lead singer/covering for our guitarist.

Spend all $200 on M&M's, then find a friend with an acoustic, and fill the body with them. Why? Because you can.

Do everything GG Allin did.
Chinese Democracy is a great album, people need to get over Slash.

Proud fan of Pop, Rap, Rock, and Metal.

Things to say during breakdowns, and guitar spinning? Those don't sound like things a metal band would do.

Although, you should go get straplocks anyway, they're very handy.

Oh I almost forgot, WINDMILLING!!!!

Synchronized dance routines. Do it.


Works especially well if all female ala Vixen.

How about

"How are you?"

watch old Racer X live shows or any Paul Gilbert live presentation... that is some stage presence without looking like a tool in the process

Wow, that Attack! Attack! video is pretty intense the first half.
Kinda becomes pussied out, but it's sick nonetheless. I like the synched-up stuff.
Like, right before the breakdown, they all sweep their hair back. Seems like a lame move but they all look damn cool doing it....... somehow.
Anyways, it's been helpful, keep it coming.

I'm praying you know how to spell that word in reality.

I won't let someone who can't spell one-syllable words judge me.
Move along.

I have now lost all respect for you.

Random inside jokes about your band work well caus ethen everyone's like "WTF? That guy must be cool cause he said something no one canunderstand" but the band will be laughing and ****.

And a big long wail of "OOOOOOH YEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!" gets 'er done too.

Funny thing, I don't know you! Nor do you know me!
Stop being so judgmental and leave if it's such a problem that I thought a move was entertaining.

Incidentally, he didn't spell anything wrong. He said 'prey' instead of 'pray', which is a grammar error. And 'praying' is two syllables.

To which the root-word is 'pray'.
It's the word I was referring to.

He used the improper spelling of it. Yes, it was incorrect. If he was speaking of wild cheetahs, it would have been acceptable.

Seriously, though.

Stage presence? Put aside the fact I was entertained by a controversial video?

"I would happily punch any of you in the face".

EDIT: Actually, say "You're all gay" and "I'm the best looking mother****er here". Devin Townsend does the best crowd-yelling-at.

TS, I'd suggest you close this thread because it's just going to be people taking shots at you now. Or leave it open, your choice.


It's always been my choice. And I'm leaving it open for the sake of construction.

I perfer the Zakk Wylde approach...

Smash a cold budwiser over your head, take a swig, throw the can in the crowd. Point at the crowd w/ beer dripping fingers and scream things like ... MAKE SOME F***ING NOISE and LIMP BIZKIT SUCKS D***!

that's what I do and it works everytime!
