Hey Simon!  If you want to see authentic stage body language that looks real and seems like it "fits," look no further than Phil Keaggy.  Here's a couple favorites of mine:

I don't know if Keaggy is your thing (you're more of a metal guy, right?), but you gotta dig the loops.  Peace.

ckyvick, the first person I ever saw play a Parker WAS Phil Keaggy. Need proof?  Here:

And I don't know if it was you in the video you posted or not, but I can't say that I learned much from it.  Maybe if the person shooting it wasn't in the 16th row, or had a zoom lens, that might have helped.

Sorry if that was snarky... It's a Monday.

Yeah, I just bought a copy on Amazon today.  I have no idea why it has taken me so long to get that.  I also picked up a replacement copy of PK's "Acoustic Sketches" CD.  I loaned it out a long time ago and well, you know how that goes...  I just couldn't live without it any longer.  It's ESSENTIAL LISTENING if you play acoustic.[:D]

it was the point that you couldnt see them and the music should just speak for itself. if you dont know anything about cky you should get yourself a copy of IDR and find out what youve been missing on, if you want a more refined sound check out an answer can be found~

When I was in high school a friend of mine loaned me three CKY cds and to this day I have never found them to be particularly interesting.  I would rather listen to Daniel Gildenlow play his Fly than any CKY song.  It's not to say they're bad, but they are not the best band on the planet by any means.

I also have that CD. Phil is also an incredible acoustic player. I would say he is my only influence when it comes to acoustic playing. I haven't really played acoustic for years now...

Why talk about it when I can show you?  For the record, none of my "super awesome stage moves" are rehearsed or planned.  Most of the time it's my gyrating flailing in a bad attempt to keep the beat.  My facial expressions, apparently, are the real money-maker.  

These shots are from Halloween 2006, when my band was the Rolling Stones for Halloween (I'm Ron Wood).  I lost a strap button on my Fly halfway through the show so had to go with the Les Paul backup.


Here, I'm clearly absorbed in that Bmaj. Doing my best "I'm totally into the music, man" hippy pose.  There's a very good chance that I was unconsciously dancing.  Again, this stupidity just sort of happens.  Looking at these pictures is like listening to a tape of yourself sleep-talking.  


Again, meditative and intent.  I think I'm trying to count the beats in "Can't You Hear Me Knockin'?"


And all dignity goes straight out the window.  Barre chords, apparently, fill me with a joy unparalleled by 1000 exploding suns.  Apparently.

I am not really that good with the performance aspect.  Actually, I pretty much suck.  Some people just get out there and own the stage.  I wish I was like that.  I was classically trained, so learned to rock out whilst sitting in a chair with one leg propped up.  That doesn't exactly scream rock star.  I do much better when I am playing acoustic though.

Phil Keaggy does have a nice presence.  Looks pretty good playing that Olson too.  Another guy who does some similar percussive stuff to Phil is Preston Reed.  However, his stage presence is about as becoming as my left toe nail.  http://youtube.com/watch?v=t3mx6fsJFjw

I saw Dream Theater a while back, along with Satch and King's X.  Honestly, Ty Tabor put on a better show than all of them, even though he is the least technical proficient of those guys.  But I'll tell you what, his playing was really impressive.  He really seemed to pull out every note with passion.

Hey Joey!  Welcome to the forum.  Can I just say, you have a sweet sounding gear collection!  I'm glad you liked the Phil Keaggy vid.  Of course, starting out on classical / acoustic, you'd probably already heard of him.  I get to see him in St. Louis on April 10 - I'm psyched!

you have to at least give CKY credit for trying something different in a world of sameness~ and parkers are a big part of their sound. mostly octave pedals, but parkers too.
