Something Different

I tend to rock back and forth. So would that be a foot stomper and head bobber combo?

BTW: I thing Magro is a head bobber.....but a different kind. lol

Breather.

As well as being a (rather violent) foot-stomper, I am a breather. I snort, groan and huff and puff loudly. Sometimes if I am really going nuts I actually forget to breathe for a while.

Fat man, fat bass.

I'm the same with the

I'm the same with the breathing, I forget and then need to remind myself.

Ya need to allow multiple

Ya need to allow multiple choices. For me it depends on the tune and my mood. I can be a "dancin' fool making faces" or a "foot stompin' head bobber" and everysoo often a "Dancin' stage acrobat" (if my knee lets me)

In my younger years you would have had to put up the "Rico Suave/I am too good and pretty to be in this band" kinda look. ;) Haha.

Yeah. I am a head bobber

Yeah. I am a head bobber and foot stomper. I don't really dance, but I like to put one foot farther forward than the the other and rock back and forth on them. It's sort of a foot-stompin' dance type thing. But, of course, the music has to be happening before I do more than try to hide behind the rhythm guitarist. :)

I'm all of those except dancing fool! I used to flip my tounge upside down in my mouth and hold it there for some reason. It took me years to break that habbit. But it made for a strange looking face (yes Hazz even stranger than normal)....hehehehe.

I was looking at some pictures my wife took at a party we played at and I looked like I had severe gas pains.

On the more serious side how does movement affect your playing? Some people claim it's really important to move with the music. Others think it's a matter of personal preferance. I think it's an individual thing.
