ok, i'm looking for what you guys like doing while your on stage and playing, or what makes you think, wow this guys good when hes playing on stage.
what would someone have to do onstage to make you say awesome. It could be a crazy move, or playing something.

thanks

I ain't letting you have my moves, they're mine!

Go for the classics; behind your head's good. All that kinda thing. Just do waht makes you say "Wow!" when you see someone else do it.

A little warning, you'll probably get some wanker coming in saying it doesn't matter what you do onstage, you should just play well, blah. Ignore them.
Feel free to ignore my ranting.

my friend can play left handed and righthanded, but when he gigs, sometimes he starts out lefthanded, eventhough hes better right, then he swings the guitar around and can play eruptin behind his back....

i think that is pretty cool, and thanks for the replies

play your guitar right in the face of the crowd... just play with them man no need of fancy moves because if your good enough you'll make them say WOW

well i recently did have a gig. and whenever i started a song it would be on the edge of the stage and yeh its all quiet helps the moves then just brutal distortion jumping around like a lunatic. also during my solos i would usually put one foot up of the monitors and just do it. but just let the music move you

it's actually everybody's move

i enjoy Malmsteen's stage presence, he always puts on a good show not only musically but also from an entertaining standpoint
