    What do you do if you're moving around stage and you get a feedback surge?
    Do you run away from the source, do you mute your strings, do you choke the neck? All of the above? What works the best?

    When I get Feed Back, I either (depending on the situation)

    Roll back the volume, ASAP, OR mute the strings with my fingers/hand. Rarely happens to me though.
  3. Look at the guitar player very cross, and then slowly roll off the volume as you shake your head in disgust....Then move to another area of the stage and crank the volume back up.....
  4. lol, nice
  5. I run toward the source and try to make it louder.

    If Im not in the mood for feedback, muting my strings and turning the tone knob on my bass toward low helps too.
