Making stupid faces is absolutely essentially to good lead guitar playing.

Haha! I think there is something that disconnects your facial muscles when you start to play. My kids laugh at me when I'm playing for pulling a face and I have no idea what they're talking about. Maybe this is why the 'rock' face evolved...... To cover the 'gorm' face? Lol

I totally do this!!!! Seriously, it makes me play better and/or only happens when "in the zone", conveys a bit more emotion in the playing, no joke!

Re: Hahaha how many of you make stupid faces when you play?

I noticed this recently...I wanted to see how my new strap looked with my 1550pbl so I walked to my bathroom mirror. I started to jam for a little bit and noticed that when I perform a set of particular licks, the left side of my mouth curls up really weird hahaha! I don't feel it (even when I look at myself in the mirror)...strange!

Re: Hahaha how many of you make stupid faces when you play?

It happens to me all the time.

If one would look at my face without knowing I'm actually playing, I'd be easily tagged as a insane person or a complete idiot.

And it's interesting to see how common this is among all kinds of musicians.

Pulling faces? What do you guys mean? I certainly don't do that. And neither does my 3 year old who thinks he's Steve Vai (already).

Re: Hahaha how many of you make stupid faces when you play?

I only make stupid faces when I get my paycheck.
Being a serious musician here is a nightmare.
I wish I was a brainless 18 who only knew 3 out of tune chords and was only able to write completely dumb lyrics.
Right now I'd be buying a mansion
And to make my career unforgetable, drugs and a stupid death.
