    I've seen this happen to some guitar players hunched over their guitar crunching out their licks...especially at practice...a wet, long line of saliva. I laughed so hard I nearly fell over! have any of you ever witnessed this or have had it happen to you? I think it's most likely to happen when you're really getting into a great groove. :)

    my guitarist will play something. stop. and then say in an exasperated voice.

    "whoooooaaaaaa!, thats good aint it, come on, i mean, oh!, thats ****in' awesome. I mean, just listen to it, i'm amazing! im so happy with that, oh!"

    or words to that effect.
     
  3. Just tie a towel around their neck, it should keep you from having to mop up the stage.

    Rock on

    No less than the great Carlos Santana considers drooling to be the surest sign that the musician is AS DEEP AS HE CAN BE into the music. If you can be so involved in what you're doing that you lose track of where your saliva is, that's really cool in Carlos's book.

    I usually don't while i'm playing bass unless i get so into it i can't controll other things. During football the drool goes ZOOM!ZOOM! while we're hitting & running sprints. that's all

    Snatch i'm an offensive & defensive tackle, we usually run about 12-20 50yard sprints. We've had to run what your talking about before but then the coaches figured out that if they just made us run more sprints instead we could run more since we'd get a break more often. thats all
