In this brief video, part of the Ernie Ball PLAY Warped Tour series, New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert shares what he thinks makes for a good live show.

“You put on an energetic live show,” he says. “For New Found Glory, there's so many people I've met that have heard our albums, and were like, 'Man, I didn't like your band, and then I went to your show and saw you live, and it's so much fun, it's so energetic. It made me like your band and I went back and checked out your records.'”

Gilbert says it helps him to personally pretend he's playing in a garage or a basement, where the band first started. “You can do anything you want,” he says. “I try to keep that mindset, which makes it more personal and interactive.”
