Title says it all. I recently became aware of a really stupid face I make when I was recording myself playing "Master of Puppets". Now I feel really self-conscious about playing in front of others and I'm going to go jam with a couple of my friends tomorrow.

But, this isn't the hugging thread so any of you make stupid faces? Post pics if you got any. Famous players can be posted too, to make me feel better.

My ex did the same. Cheated on me and then acted like I'd given her sister a facial. Women are retarded.

It's called Guitar Face, and there have been multiple threads on it already.

Jari Mäenpää has a good guitar face

And TS, if you play well, they won't really care of your guitar face.

I'm a singer, so I practice in front of a mirror to avoid doing that.

Believe me, be lucky you just have a face. I sometimes uncontrollably make random sounds every now and then while playing.

I watched this guy on YouTube and he actually seemed to punch the air randomly when playing solos.
Yeaaah. He later posted on the description that he never actually noticed that he was doing it and why...
I have a ponytail fetish.

I'm a drummer. It's a given that I have a stupid face.

^not nearly 'stupid face' enough! you should really work on getting a good drumming 'stupid face'.

John Mayer's face contorts like something you'd find in a circus freak show

it makes me want to slap him in his face.


but we all do it to some degree, I tend to just close my eyes and sort of follow the notes with my face, less embarrassing than some

That face says to me, "I dunno why I'm here, but I'm here, so I might as well bang these sticks on something."

Live performances wouldn't be the same without the Guitar Face. Don't be ashamed of it.

This thread is slightly pointless, given most of you have stupid faces even when you aren't playing.

My guitar face resembles the facial attributes of the defecation process.

I sometimes push my tongue against my lower lip when I'm deep in concentration playing guitar... and of course I have a stupid wah face too. And when I sing high notes my face looks absolutely ridiculous.

My string bending face is almost exactly like that. Me and B.B. are both very gifted when it comes to looking like a happy retarded kid when playing guitar.
Alright people, Move along - there is nothing to see.

Guys, music is emotional and faces are results of the emotions. Don't be embarrassed about it, it's part of the vibes like body languages. The whole you gets into it.

My friends teases me about it and I tell 'em you're friggin' zombies, you're friggin' boring.

I used to have my mouth open and mouth the notes I was playing. All it takes to correct is to spend some practice time of consciously making sure you don't so it.
I pride myself on my humility.
