Well my friends band recently lost their frontman/screamer, and theres a high possibilty that I will be asked to fill in according to my friend. So..I'm kinda nervous. I've played shows before, but only before I became vocalist and guitarist of my band, so essentially ive only been a guitarist in a live situation.

My question, If I do get asked, what the hell do I do? I want to have at least some "frontman" stage presence, but I'm not used to that kind of thing yet. Any tips

This being the bandleading forum..and this being a question pertaining to frontmen, I figured this would be where it went. Feel free to move it if in the wrong forum.

It's a tricky one, but fronting a band really isn't very difficult. As long as you've got an acceptable voice and a bit of charisma, just do what feels natural and you won't go far wrong

Same thing dude. Your first couple of times are crap. All you can do is prepare and improve.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

Also, when you're on stage, remember the following:
1) All the women in the crowd want your body
2) All the men in the crowd want your body
3) Your voice cracks the very earth beneath you with its sheer power
4) You will go down in history alongside Freddie Mercury, Robert Plant and Roger Daltrey as one of the greatest frontmen of all time
5) You could lay Axl Rose out in one punch
Then you should have about enough self confidence to pull it off

Maybe study some frontmen you like and see if you can borrow some of their techniques. Don't try to do too much, though, and let the first time be a learning experience.

If that works... Go For It...

Mainly, just have fun... Try a few things, see what works up the crowd, and do more of it...
