    Don't spin your guitar!
    1. Strap locks are a must
    2. Check your surroundings first!!!





    When mounting the stage
    1. Check clothing doesn't restrict movement



    When playing live
    1. Know your parts!
    2. If you can't play a part, don't!



    When stagediving
    1. Check your surroundings!
    2. Wireless is preferred



    When you book an event
    1. Make sure your band's style is comparable to other acts on the bill



    Guitar maintenance
    1. Don't remove all your tuners



    Amp maintenance
    1. Guitar amps contain lethal voltage, stored in capacitors even when turned off
    2. Don't randomly poke around in there!



    Enjoy!

    ^^^

    Here is the solution:

    1. Band mates learn The sleeper hold...


    OR

    2. Practice!!!

    I really wish I can track down the video of me jumping off a PA speaker during a show, landing on the stage, falling forward, rolling on-top of my pedalboard, knocking the mic stand down and one final roll off the stage onto the floor yet still playing....

    tl;dr: don't jump off really high spots.

    I once saw the guitarist for the Acacia Strain (pretty sure it was Daniel Laskiewicz) do a strap throw that resulted in his guitar hitting the floor and the headstock snapping right off. It was hilarious because for a few seconds he didn't know what happened and kept trying to play. So he ran offstage to find another guitar, but apparently didn't have his own backup and all the other bands were using different tunings. It took ~10 minutes to get one/set one up, and in the meantime we were treated to a bizarre but entertaining diatribe from Vincent Bennett. Lesson: if you play with knees bent and the guitar near your shins, stand up for the strap throw.

    The guitar flip fail never fails to make me laugh. My friend showed me that a while back and it's still one of the greatest things I've ever seen.
