Hey guys,

I'm really into bands who really move around on stage. Jumping, kicking, running. How the hell do they keep on playing if they do stuff like that? How do you practise that? Are there any things I have to pay attention to?

Do you know any videos I may wanna watch to steal some cool ideas from?

I really think this is important to a performance and I really wanna be able to do this, so thanks in advance! smile.gif

I think that those guitarists first practiced a lot at home just like we do. After they played their material thousands of times and felt 100% confident, jumping on stage isn't that big problem.

Just practice walking and standing. Play in front of a mirror and do some posing.

My favourite guitar moves:

-Upright guitar Solo by Zakk Wylde
-Playing behind your head: Jimi Hendrix, SRV, Claudio Sanchez(Coheed and Cambria) and many more
-Extremely hyperactive behaviour: Angus Young, Scott Ian (Anthrax)
-The Helicopter: Alexi Laiho and Juan M. Valero!!! (He does it so ask him to do a lesson)
-Extreme/Rotor Headbanging: Kerry King, Jason Newsted
And my favourite, the 360 jumpkick by Marc Rizzo!!!!!

This is a great point! I think it does add alot to your live show...well depending on the style of music you're playing:)
Emir put it best, You have to be so comfortable with your riffs/parts first, so comfortable you can do a 360 while still playing the riff:)

every thing is practiced to perfection,and so well executed.I watched some Pantera home video,where bassist is drinking like 3 bottles of some thing just before the show(he is dead drunk smile.gif ),bnut when he hits the stage,nothing played like a good.So I think that there is a lot of practice and experience of course.

People that jump on stage make mistakes if they haven't practiced or done quite a few times to jump and play - that's about it wink.gif

Well you practice it either home or on stage (second option is not that recommended but also not impossible)...People tend to make mistakes (John Frusciante for example)..Just jump around the house and play , try to get in the mood..
In my opinion jumping always takes away some playing precision etc so you need to balance your stage act and playing where you satisfy both criteria.

What about Steve Vai, he does all kinds of moves on stage. Take those insane guitar licks and try to play them the way he does, don't know how he does it, to play his stuff you need concentration, yet he plays it like it is the easiest thing on earth. I guess he achieved that by practicing 10 hours a day sitting and then playing live for many years.

My favourite guitar moves:


More obscure, but fun....Aaron North, formerly of NIN's live show. One thing he'd do is lay his guitar on top of the 4x12 cab, then do a handstand on it. He also does this thing where he'll hold a chord/note and swing his guitar around by the neck with his left hand like a sword or something. Kinda nutty.

I'd be surprised to see any of the instructors willing to try to top some of the stuff that's out there of Kris already. I know from the "You Ready" video that there are willint GMC students at least.

I'm not really into "performing" while I play yet. I'm having a hard enough time making the transition from sitting to standing while playing, I don't need to add complexity of moving around to the mix.

I think every time I've seen an interview about stage moves from a big guitarist, they talked about how they just did it in their room, and frequently emulated someone else. Angus emulates Chuck Berry, Scott Ian emulates Angus, etc....I'm sure there's someone out there in a modern metal band that's running around like Scott does.

I've shot a couple of short videos of my playing in the last couple weeks for a project and I was surprised by what I saw. One of the nice things about the digital age is cameras are relatively cheap and it's pretty eye opening seeing yourself play from a camera's point of view in 30-fps high definition glory...
