Five Tips For Creating Excitement on Stage
#5. Decide to get into it. Not all songs are super happy, but whatever the emotion, it should look like you understand what the song means.
#4. Create different visual levels by standing, bending and crouching or extending your arms at various points in your performance.
#3. Steal air guitar moves. Whats the difference between the Air Guitar World Championships and a great live, local show? About seven pounds (~the weight of an electric guitar).
#2. Pick your spots. Move when parts of the song are under control, bear down when it’s technically demanding.
#1. Let nothing detract from the sound. The bottom line is your performance must sound great. The idea is to have the visual presentation complement your musicianship.
