So you're playing THAT solo, and the crowd is just about eating out of your hand. Everything's going great, and it's just about at the time where you pull out your signature move, and the crowd goes crazy -- What do you do? (Rest assured I'll be copiously note taking here )

While I'm far from any sort of good mover and shaker on stage, I have one go to move - A synchronised headbang with the Rhythm Guitarist and the Bassist coming out of one of our breakdowns and back into the chorus. It's nothing special, but the crowd knows it's coming now, and usually get quite into it.

Feel free to bend the limitations of this thread to tell me about your favourite Guitar move.

I've never actually done it while playing, but in Muse's video for Time is Running Out, Matt Bellamy does a power slide and does a dance move with the beat to get back on his feet. It's pretty sick. I did it at a dance once but not during a show.

throw the guitar around my body in an anti-clockwise direction during a short break in the music of one my band's songs.

There are most certainly not the same thing. They share the same notes, but then again a hamburger and vomit could share the same molecular composition.

What, pray tell, is this Claudio Sanchez shotgun? I love Coheed and Cambria so any kick-ass move he has must be pretty... kick-ass, I guess.

I can do tap harmonics with my tounge. I'm not gonna lie, it's pretty much the coolest move ever.

He holds his guitar up to his shoulder like a gun, and plays it, adding little "recoil" motions at rythmic punctuations.

I don't have a video camera, or else I would, but what I do is I pick the note, either normally, or with my teeth, and bring the guitar up to my face so that people can still see all the strings, as well as my face, and then while the note is sustaining, I touch the string where the harmonic node is located, and let her rip.

I got the idea from watching Steve Vai do it, only I'm actually doing it.

I was watching Lost online when I clicked on this thread, in fact I was watching the exact scene where Jacob/Christian tells Locke to move the island, so your avatar and user title gave me a WTF moment.

well i don't do any of these during solos, I do the typical lift the guitar over the shoulder thing like you're going to swing it but you never let go. Then I do that thing where you do one spin kinda slowly and then use the momentem to jump in the air and spin again kinda doing like a double windmill kick. I also do this thing there I hold the guitar in my left hand then throw it across my body and then as it's about to wrap around me i catch with my right arm and pull it back down. Then i'm working on doing a cartwheel, then me and the other guitarist are practicing throwing out guitars across to each others during breaks of songs. Soon as I buy straplocks i'm going to practice that spinning the guitar around you.

I kinda suck at describing things sorry... >.<

Take the metal stance to the max, get wider and wider until it hurts and it actually hard to get up.

Its not cool, its not clever. But its my thing
