hey, just relax as much as possible when your up on stage and enjoy it and be confedent(but not overly so), I've often made the mistake of focussing so much on what i'm playing that the performacnce as a whole becomes a bit boring, but it's easier to do other things if you've practiced so much you don't have to think about what you're doing.

Stage prop wise, some cool lighting and a smoke machine, mabie a fan to make your hair look cool (if you have long hair)

with teeth playing i tried but i have braces so its really quite awkward and hard

ok his some ideas that im not sure on in terms of introduction. 1) start to play something really basic like smoke on on the water riff then launch into eruption 2) say something stupid like "I will now proceed to make love to this guitar" or something to that effect or 3) play something sort of pretty on clean then switch to hi gain distortion

kinda jump around while your playig it. Especially during the open chord part at the beginning jump in the air and just look like your having fun. Look pretty releaxed as well. And during the solo parts just... i dont know look like your doing a solo, bend back and make faces or whatever. look at videos of Van Halen for more ideas.
The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

Well, here's a tip. Play it on the drums. There's one hell of a trick. Or just sing it.


lmao.

Can you actually play it, or do you just wanna play some really fast notes and impress people who have no idea what you're playing?

dont pick tap...that sounds cool but when you do it with eruption it just sounds gay

id also advice not playing it

if you can play it, thats great, but there's nothing more annoying then someone covering eruption. you see, eruption was van halens lead in to all the crazy **** he did in all his songs. i highly doubt your originals are that good. so youll look and sound like an idiot playing eruption (if you actually can, which i honestly doubt, because if you were that talented you wouldnt be wasting your time asking people for advice on how to play it) and then playing lame follow up songs

do some original guitar solo, they're always so much sweeter, and they actually show off what your going to do
