Hey guyz, all of you, whether u r in a band or not, know how important it is for a band to maintain its visual appearance. Here i will share my thoughts on how to improve your visual appearance as a band while performing live. My most of ideas applies to rock and metal bands. And i also want help from the more experienced frnds here. Because as i read on this forum, they have amaging knowledge and guts. Guyz plz share your ideas about improving the appearance... Here are some tips... 1. POSITIONING: when going to perform live we should first decide how we are going to position ourselves on the stage. Some of us does not think about this much and just decides their initial standing positions on stage. In a metal band there are some typical standing positions viz. Having lead guitarist and bassist on ends in the front row with rythm guitarist in middle front row if he is also a vocalist. The drummer can be positioned in the center back or if a keyboardist is present then the drummer and the keyboardist can share the same back row. Also in an another arrangement the drummer can be in center and the keyboardist can be on the side end in front row. Now some improvisations can be made on these positions like when the solo of the music comes the singer can go back and the lead guitarist can take the center position and when the solo ends the same positions continues again. Also the bassist or the lead guitarist can go to the drummer and can play there for a while. I m typing this on my mobile and i m a lazy guy so next ideas i'll post after sometime. Bt now its time for you to share your idea on this topic, so that including me and other can also hv some more to gain. Thank you.
