so was Jeff Beck he didnt believe that a 3 foot nothing that looked 16 years old could rock the way she did (by the way she was 24 when she played for him,)
what a fine tallent!
I wasn't aware that she is a midget and Jeff Beck is four feet tall.
Did they dance in Spinal Tap?
People love that s$&t.
Put 2 guitar players onstage and give them both a solo.
I guarantee the one who squinches up his/her body and face the most, gets the biggest applause.
I'm actually considering acting stupider onstage to get people's attention.
These guys are local to me, and I think they're REALLY good...so maybe I shouldn't call them out, but....
They sure get a lot more and better gigs than I do...so, there ya go.
This is actually a pretty tame performance for them.
lets leave that her and Avril Lavigne have problems reaching the top shelf at the super market!
How about "drum face"....the drummer for Loverboy...I could never watch him without literally laughing out loud.
I saw him in another band after that and same thing....in the following vid...at 2:32...and example, though I'm sure there's more...I didn't really spend much time looking.
I once took my sister to see Jonny Lang...she remarked about the faces he continuously made during his show...Jonny be good at it
Look Frank's smiling!
I'm a tad over six feet tall and... I'll help Avril any time.
I cannot stand looking at or listening to Brittany. She's talented but wouldn't know understatement if it bit her in the butt. Same for Grace Potter, although she's easy to look at.
I love the "drum face" in this video!
Eons ago, I had a drummer who got his back, and face into the show.
Getting back to the band in the original post - that type of guitar face (and Brittany Howard is another example) strikes me as completely contrived. And that type of guitar face seems to go hand in hand with mediocre blooooooz playing: "Look at me! I'm reaaleeee feelin' it man!" That dude has good tone, touch and phrasing, but certainly nothing remarkable.
Samantha Fish is perhaps more spontaneous, and she's a great showman, but again, the faces are part of the show and the guitar playing is definitely not out of the ordinary.
In general, I like to watch the guys who make it look effortless and like they are having fun. Seems like a lot of country guys are in this category - Marty and Kenny spring to mind.
If a great player grimaces, that's one thing, but if it's constant mugging like Gary Moore, or Joe Walsh, or (god help us) G.E. Smith, I may respect the playing, but I'd rather not watch.
It goes without saying this is just my unfiltered .02.
Early on my 'guitar face' was just my mouth hanging open...looks stupid and probably distracting, so I learned to close it while playing. I say distracting because when I see another player's jaw hanging open, I think, "for pete's sake close your mouth!"
Similarly, I had to train myself to stop making the "wah wahs" with my mouth when using a wah pedal.
I'm pretty straightfaced performer but like to look happy (not tortured).
These guys were always emotional.
He looks like I do when I'm about to get my cookies.
My guitar face, I'm told, looks really really angry.
Guitar faces crack me up, I just find them entertaining. Joe Walsh is famous for it.
There was a series of photoshop pics where people subbed giant snails for the guitar; epic. I was going to post that Mayer with a snail pic but someone beat me to it. Also the B.B. pic where he looks like he finally found the note he’d been searching for his entire life.
