I am curious where everyone physically sets up or stands on stage. In my last serious band, I would practice/perform on the drummer's left side (near hi hat). This was an ideal position for making eye contact and all in all probably gave me a little more influence in the song writing. When it came to performance, the drums were usually set up pretty far back on the stage and I would end up in the middle front. Current band is a little different. I end up taking stage left or middle depending if we have a second guitarist. When we rehearse, I am on the drummer's Ride side and communication isnt as easy (there is usually a china between my face and his). The guitarist has the coveted hi-hat spot.
