Well, if you're playing "hardcore"

...Don't

Just shake your head up and down.

At least, that's what all the metal bands I've played concerts with did.

Im taking it that your a guitarist so for stage presance....

Move toward the audience, keep eye contact with them etc and just generally try to involve the audience, if you start to move around the croud will get more pumped because of what you do to involve them

Hope this helps

Get in sync with your bassist/other guitarist and do syncronised headbanging and guitar raising, thats always works well. Just generally go crazy, because noone will really care what you look like. I've seen decent bands that look really stupid, just because they're letting themselves go as nuts as they want, but despite looking silly, it adds to the show, because everyone else will be doing exactly the same thing.

Also, if you can, try two-stepping and playing at the same time, if you have a sick breakdown. Me and the other guitarist do this in my band, it really gets people going.

Headbanging and "metal stuff" is gay.

With a signature like that, you should just get into crab stance and let the crab hammer drop.

If you're actually having fun, and know how to play well without standing in one spot and staring at your guitar neck, then stage presence will come naturally.

if you don't get into crab stance, you could always BTBAM it and have one member with monster stage presence, three members with pretty good-to-OK stage presence (one is a drummer, so there is no reason to force it), and one member (you) that is a statue.

Usually it's about the vocalist. As long as the instrument players move a little bit, it won't look bad. Just bounce your head to the beat, TS. Or pull a Converge, and flail non stop.

I was referring to Dan Briggs actually, who makes up for Paul Waggoner's statue-like stage presence. TS, I say move as much as you can move, because this post is kind of correct, it is usually about the vocalist.

"Oh, look at me! I play bass and I'm wearing gym shorts and I'm barefoot!" I like him.

Actually people with instruments have more outlets than a vocalist minus crowd interactions.

but they generally have less to do and can move around more, also, they're usually center stage, which helps them to be the focus

I wouldn't say that at all, especially if you're playing more technically involved music. The only bands I've seen videos of being technical and moving around a lot are the Dillinger Escape Plan, and Converge. All the others are usually the vocalist moving around frantically, while the guitarists/bassists just bob their heads or crab up and down.

You're typing is pretty articulate for a drunk guy, I hope you're not just playing the drunk card out of defeat .

Articulation has nothing to do with typing in any way! Also I can out drunk-type anyone in my age bracket. Furthermore, I've never failed a sobriety test in my life.


Edit: Also also, in whatever we were talking about I'm almost certain I was right

I've full on convinced friends via text that I've been sober right after telling them I had just been drinking prior to talking to them. I'd like to think I've mastered texting/typing while intoxicated. Hell, I typed this post half drunk, half hungover...
