show-off guitar moves!!!!!

Happy burns night fellas, welcome to another groovy thread from your ole pal CJ

This ones all about guitar moves, the sort of things u do to look "wicked-awesome" mid solo!

I want to hear from you guys, what's your favourite manouver? So list any moves u may have seen in a music video, or on stage or your own creation!

Let me get the ball rolling, i seen these 2 in a steve vai video and they are: As steve does a trill, he sort of flaps his tongue about to the noise.
The second is as he does a bend his eyebrows go up, he does it twice and it looks sorta cool, ive also noticed that when i'm improvising if i do something like that, my eyebrows naturally do that anyway and i think conductors in an orchestra do it too.

peace, love and good happyness stuff!

I wonder if those guys ever practised it first ?? I always wondered if the cord gets in the way ??

Re: show-off guitar moves!!!!!

I once tripped over my guitar lead while I was playing Countdown To Extinction, and somehow managed to keep playing without stuffing up, does that count?

Rock on!

Playing with the tongue rocks.
Also, playing with your hand from above the neck really makes you look like an ace.

:P
