Hey I would like to know if it's harder, easier, or the same to play while your are standing. For me, it's a lot harder and i would like to know if it's normal? Am I just not use to it?

You're probably not used to it yet.
I thought I would never get used to it but now I play more standing up than when I'm sitting down.

I can hardly play electric while sitting down.


I guess it's whatever you're used to.

It's hard to play on the higher frets on the low strings.
Though the shortest your strap is, the more comfortable it's going to be to play on the high frets.

It depends on many things.

Like whether you posted in the right forum or not. Try electric guitar and use the search bar before you post, I'm 100% certain this has been done...many time.

It's not hard, it's because your not used to it, I find it as easy as playing on a chair.

it used to be hard for me but what i did was sit down and ajust my strap so when i was standing up my guitar was in the same place as sitting down. then play for a while then lower it, get used to it then lower again. at first you look retarded but it doesnt take long to get used to playing standing
#12
it was hard until i started sitting with the guitar on my left leg instead of right. i swear it helps so much. NOTE i play right handed.

For some reason I find it harder, especially when I'm playing solos. I think I'm just not used to it.

Well I don't know about solos but how about that Smoke on the Water riff. It's like...impossible.

Are you talking about masturbating or playing the guitar?

I can never tell.

My strap is so high that it hangs when I sit down so there's not really a difference between the two. It may look dumb to you but it is proper technique.
Sig What?

It used to be harder, but I find it easy now. Just give it some time, and you'll get used to it.
#23
Right now (I'm still kinda new to guitar), I can do everything standing that I can do sitting except I tremelo pick really fast. Kinda bugs me since I can do all the other stuff then do really sloppy tremelo picking.
