Moves on stage. We all do them, unless we just want to stand there like a zombie strumming away. Unfortunately, I can't think of many. Any ideas? Apart from trashing my instrument and playing a burning axe with my teeth, if possible. Thanks in advance...

You'll most probably end up looking faggy and stupid if you start jumping around like crazy doing stage move...

As i always say, just enjoy what you do on stage, if you're into it, the crowd will be into your music...

And watch these video's to get some inspiration bout an excellent stage presence...
Bulls on Parade - RATM (perfect intro to a gig! Totally epic!!)
Black Label - LOG
ArcArsenal - At the Drive-In (you couldn't have a better stage presence than these guys!!
State of the Union - Rise Against

What you play might be completely different from these guys...
But these guys really know how to get a crowd moving...!

when I'm on stage just have fun. I sing and play guitar for a grunge/garage band so when I'm off the mic I move around a lot. Heck last concert I ran into the drum kit. I'd say if you're the lead singer and/or guitarist act like you're a lunatic or really into the music, people can't look away cause they don't know what you're gonna do next.

3 words. Always, always, ALWAYS remember this. Keep it natural. You will move with the music, and it will feel totally right.

If it does not feel right, or you are unable to perform without 100% concentration on your instrument, you truthfully shouldn't be playing live, anyway. You just aren't ready, yet.
