    Does anyone besides me make a really stupid face sometimes/all the time while playing? My face just seems to get really long...

    my fiance laughs everytime she sees me play. I look really spaced with a hint of constipation. I think I just need to relax.

    I tend to stare at whoever is looking at me when i play. i think i scare people when i do it aswell, hehe. I do the tounge thing when i try a fill, but i dont really stand there with my tounge dangling out 24/7 :p

    My chin retreats to a land that I will never know.
  6. Yea, i tend to bite my tongue when I'm bumpin' up the tempo, I make lots of faces.. just my way of dancing..

    My top lip comes up one side sometimes whne im getting that aggressive feeling.. Otherwise I just head bang so no oen can see me :D

    II'm stho coo :rolleyes: :cool:
  7. I had one great picture taken of me looking out over top of the crowd like some sort of god, and I've been trying to recreate it ever since. I look like an idiot every time now.

    I just tend to look really happy, but that's 'cuz I am 'cuz i get to lay down the low end groove. Other than that I guess i just look like i'm really into the music.:cool:

    Did that make any sense?:confused:
  9. Oh man, I used to get the piss absolutely ripped out of me about this. I tend to bite my tongue when I'm concentrating, so the first couple of gigs I ever played I looked like a complete feckless idiot. I've got over it now, but the pictures still come back to haunt me :D.
  10. Most of the time i look like i'm off to a far away never-ever land totaly lost in the groov and when i'm playing (or trying to play) allong with cd's i been told that when i got the lines right, i look like a 5yr old who just got the new toy he always dreamed off.

    This is a way to common pose for me :oops:

  13. My wife tells me I bite my top lip (mouth closed) every time I get to a complicated passage (if I'm not singing). That's gotta be stupid-looking.
  14. Some of my compadres say it looks like im talking.....that and i drool.....but thats only when im sitting and concentrating really hard:D .

    If only i had a picture
  15. i guess i make weird faces. i have a pic im gonna post later of me dressed as a nun and it looks like im coughing up a hairball.

    also, i guess i just trip out, people say i look like im trying to kill my bass. i do get pretty in to it.

    My wife tells me we "sound good".

    I probably have all the stage presence of a trash can.

    People say I look stoned,,, and i don't want to be there.....

    But i really do enjoy playing, i just look like a dumbass when i play.
  18. Everyone says I move my mouth around when I play, they tell me its like im saying wah wah. I have no clue what there talking about since I dont notice it. Someone told me to chew on gum while I play but I did and I choked on it. Bad Idea
  19. My mouth hangs open and I shake my head around. I am like a puppet being manipulated by some invisible master's strings!
