This video has been around for a couple of years, but it never fails to bring a smile to my face.

In it, Jesse Phillips offers players two useful guitar-face techniques—Lyric Mimicking and Smelling the Skunk—to help make their playing more expressive.

As Jesse explained in a previous video, “If you play guitar and you play a lick and your face doesn’t do anything—if that’s it, it’s not gonna sound good.”

Undoubtedly, these techniques will make your playing sound much better. Smelling the Skunk should prove especially useful. “You have to pretend that the notes you’re playing have physical odor,” Jesse says. 

I’ve included two of his other Guitar Face videos below. Enjoy.
