    Who knows why, but some players make faces and it doesn't bother me at all. But occasionally, as the OP said, it can make my skin crawl a little, watching someone face it up. OTOH, It does bother me, for some reason, when a player performs with no expression at all, or worse, looks bored.

    Here's a good one:

    I always thought the guitar tone at the intro of "Turn Me Loose" was killer.

    This video contains not just guitar face, but everything face, and it's really hard to watch.

    Why do I think that after three drinks, this guy would be listing all the ways that Tom Cruise is sincere?

    Some of th am so look a bit S#$t faced but to be honest. I'm a bit guilty, even my more introvert character and British stiff upper lip can't stop some odd facial movements. If I make a conscious effort I either don't play as well our get a twitchy face like Samantha in bewitched, only a guy version.

    Some guitarists are fortunate with their natural guitar faces... Page, for example, usually had expressions that just made him look even cooler.
