For a long time, guitarists all over the world have been captured in the middle of musical rapture (perhaps to their own chagrin), expressing an epic soul transmigration.

We’ve rifled through a stack of #guitarface records and come up with a list of some of the most expressive faces in guitar history. Take a look and see how well our description measures up:

  1. Stevie Ray Vaughan
    Stevie’s expression during his 1989 concert in New York looks like he’s having his soul forcibly removed from his body.
