    Those guys just played. How wacky!

    Look at the mechanics of how they play: minimal movement of both hands. They find the shortest path between two points and don't introduce anything unnecessary.

    I'm not threatened. I'm amused. As for "there's nothing inauthentic about what he's conveying," heck yeah there is. The fact that he has to coach these moves blows any semblance of "authenticity" right out of the water.

    That said, we know where he's coming from, so, as my granddaughter would say (with a shrug), whatever.

    And yes, I'm old enough to have a granddaughter, so I understand and accept that my viewpoints are completely irrelevant.

    Hmmmm. And I need to go back and look. I don't think Townshend moved his headstock correctly on those windmills? Think of where they might have gotten if he had.

    I have SO been a Rock Star for Decades.

    One of these days I'm going to learn some songs to go with my moves!

    I learned how to look like a rock star in the summer of ‘99.

    Funny how this topic has so many comments. When I play I do tend to move a lot. Especially when I play bass, cuz I don't have to think very hard about it. I always thought the audience wanted to see you are into the music you play. I never could understand why do many people just stand there. That said, I can't say I have ever shot lasers from my guitar, came up for breath or thought whether someone in the back of the house would notice my widespread legs or a guitar slung behind my back
