Do you make funny faces
 
without being aware of it during your performance ? i do .....i cant seem to help it! IVE TRYD but it henders my performance.... ive found many examples of musicians who share the same trait ...........such as ...mick fleetwood, kim carnes drummer , myron grambacher. to name a few .Even singers such as joe cocker. they dont let there faces bother them . yet watching a drummer that has no expression tends to lack the showmanship to keep it interesting ! im pretty laid back then,just before play i like to say that im calm, cool and collected. then in an instant i become a unique performer, faces and all...people say to me it looks like im really getting into the song..)..thats where they are right .. im in my happy place with my favorite instrument exploring my inner drummer, while my faces are making drumming such a pleasure for me ... i want to share with other drummers who make faces ,. that there not alone, so imbrace your face , its not a disgrace , as long as its the music you chase!!.

Occasionally I leave my mouth wide open when I play. I hate that. I try to compensate by closing my mouth tightly when I become aware of this.

This is a very funny thread.

I constantly make faces. My wife said my face looks like one of a male porn star at the apex of his scene!!!!!!

My face is constantly contorting.

I don't care though. I am having fun and could care less what others think!!

I don't know how Neil Peart keeps a straight face. That is why I love watching Portnoy!! The guy gets into it!!

Haha, apparently I look like I'm having the orgasm of a lifetime, or I just got kicked in the crotch when I play XD

Yeah man, I find that if I'm not making faces, I'm not diggin the music, so faces are a good thing! It adds character to your playing

I don't do this but I think it looks SO STUPID when people's lower jaw gets offset to varying degrees according to the complexity of what they're playing. And I've seen it in quite a few people! This one guy gets an under-right bite when he plays.

Yup, Pixie. Like Nebula, I get a real slack jawed look when I play, and manage to look remarkably stupid. Thats when I'm with my inner drummer too.

i make a lot of faces too, i open my mouth a lot...

i had the fortune of taking a class with kenwood dennard and i remember after one class.. a guy asked if he made a lot of faces.. and he said that a lot of drummers seem as if they're suffering.... others have no emotion at all.. but he said that if you're layin down a great groove, your face should seem as if you're smelling a fish...
he's a funny guy

Sadly I am apparently expressionless when playing, apart from a slight frown as if trying to intimidate the kit into submission!! The more into the playing I get, the blanker I look!!
Doesnt mean that Im not dancing inside tho.....

This is so funny, when ever I watch a drummer I watch his hands and feet. Now I am going to look as their faces more thanks to this thread and I am going to pull my mirror in front of my kit and look at myself play.After some of these coments I would really love to see your faces LOL.

Jon Cable you are a riot!

I open my mouth a bit. Trying to stop that. Faces are one thing but slack jawed just makes me look a little short on brains.
