    strangest thing you have done while playing

    Not sure if this is in the right section but what is the weirdest thing you have done while playing? Mine would be forgetting to breathe and swallow. I've gotten dizzy so many times while playing because I feet so into it. I drooled on my guitar once because I forgot to swallow. So now you all think I'm nuts What is yours?

    I forgot to breathe too sometimes. I did once go for a piss while playing one of my old bands songs on bass, one handed.

    I do the drooling thing every so often.

    I've lost track of the weird stuff I've done while playing, best one was probably when I had a brutal, brutal cold (I should not have been near humans in that state) and I had a huge line of snot dangling from my nose. Of course that got caught on camera, but as I had not noticed it, I flicked my head back and threw the (huge) line of snot skywards, where it stuck to the roof and dribbled down onto the crowd.

    I do the drooling thing sometimes too, I don't think it's that uncommen, a fruend of mine also did it wheb we had a little ham once.

    Sometimes when I'm really concentrated I make this weird moaning noise too. It was a friend who made me aware of that, I had no idea, haha.

    I once had, uh, a couple of jack and cokes and fell into my own amp while holding Drew's strat. Does that count?

    I actually have the opposite problem; I keep getting told that I breathe like Darth Vader whenever I play.

    I swear when I have difficulties playing something. Not like Tourrette's status or anything but you know. It would bust my professor up when I'd be playing Bach while muttering very quietly "Goddamn you Johan."
