Look excited. Don't just stand there and watch the notes you play. Move around the stage, stand in a cool stance... just work it.

Yeah Soundgarden's a good one play. Try some good instrumental songs not many people will know...

And just jump around...

I find it's ok to stand still if you make it look good. Eg:
Powerstance
'Activate star power' (sorry)
Headbang
Thrust wildly
etc.

make eye contact to the audience, dont always look at your guitar the whole way through, but make sure you don't screw up when you take your eyes off the guitar

like Steve Vai and Eric Johnson, both great guitar players but who grabs the crowd more? youtube both of them and find out
