Bonus Guitar Faces Collection

Through looking for the awesome guitar faces in this post, I came across a collection of images that have been let’s say… slightly altered, to replace the guitarists’ guitar with a snail. Don’t ask me why the creator chose to pick a snail as the replacement but it’s actually pretty funny. Here’s a preview.

Hopefully, this list of funny guitar faces made you laugh. If you’re a guitar player, you’ve almost certainly made one of these funny faces yourself. It’s all about expression and really “feeling the music”. It certainly isn’t a bad thing or something that you should try to hide. I would actually encourage you to be as expressive as you’d like, most times being expressive physically will result in much more feeling and expression in the music you’re playing.

If you have a guitar player friend that makes one of these faces, share this post with them. Comment below which face is your favorite!
