i had the same issues before and what i did was, i just closed my eyes and pretend someone else was playing badly... :roll:

breathing through slightly opened jaw really helped. and the smile. i still close my eyes sometimes but for effect. my audience (my niece) finds it very funny... :wink:

That's me , when I look in the mirror while practicing I have to think " man doesn't he look mean " . Maybe it's because I take everything so seriously instead of relaxing and just enjoying the music . I just don't know what the answer to this problem is ( if it is a problem ) .
Check out a John Mayer video on Youtube. THAT guy has seriously extreme "guitar face."
