Mosh while playing?

Guys, do you mosh your head while playing bass? If you do, what style do you use? Do you have problems with loosing coordination or to miss sounds on the guitar or whatever?

Sounds pretty ridicolous, but I wanted to know how you do on that things ;D

Mosh your head? That would probably give you a head ache. I bang my head though.

Well its not that difficult, i do it playing guitar aswell as while playing bass. However, it is easier on bass if you pick fingerstyled. There is no advice to be given except starting with easier stuff and, of course, bang your head correctly to the rhythm, i tend to have the downbeat when my hair is at 6 o clock, if you know what i mean .

U mean Mosh as in for getting in the pit?

Cuz i do that while playing guitar and doing vocals with a headset mic.
But when there are venues without em, I would go during the parts w/o vocals and start shoving with my shoulder.

As far as windmills, DONT LOOK DOWN, ur balance will be fucked and there is a chance u will fall.

Just look straight at the crowd.

you seem to misunderstood me. I meant it's like people in poland say word mosh, but they mean headbanging by that. They say 'mosh' same as they would in english, but they mean something else :P
