Flynn Amps and the value of enthusiasmK is for Knopfler, MarkM is for Modes

Tuesday Tip for the 11th of October
October 11, 2011

Morning everyone,

I was musing yesterday on stagecraft and the huge void of it that I seem to witness more often than not when watch people live. I have had many occasions to teach it over the years and it really does depend both on the genre and the individual.

My top tip for everyone, however, would be this; The only time you look stupid, is when you look like you’re not enjoying yourself.

This takes different forms. If you’re in a punk band, you going to look better throwing yourself about, if it’s folk you play, a serious look and some foot tapping coupled with a wry sense of humour is better. Tailor it to suit and have fun. It really is as simple as that.
