What to do with my hands?
I've been playing/singing in bands off and on for decades, but always from behind a guitar. The latest band I'm in don't need another guitarist, so I'm strictly a front man, which I've never done before. We've only had a couple of practises so are a long way from gigging yet, but I just don't know what to do with my hands. I really enjoy the change in being able to just concentrate on the vocals and not have to worry about the guitar, but I feel a little lost at the same time.
Any suggestions? I've been watching videos of other singers that I like to try to see what they do, but I just don't feel comfortable flaying my arms around. Will it just come naturally with practise, or do I actually need to force myself to do it until I get used to it?
The type of music I'm singing ranges from quite mellow Eagles type stuff right up to AC/DC full on rock. It's a covers band.
