When I play standing up? I tilt at a slight angle but I see people basically having the headstock point towards the ceiling, when I try to do it, I can't get a good pick attack when I play, so am I supposed to angle my hand too?
A good song should make you wanna tap your foot and get with your girl. A great song should destroy cop cars and set fire to the suburbs. I'm only interested in writing great songs.

I've heard a lot of people say the nut should be at shoulder length, but I think it would be a little different for everyone based on arm length as well as hand and finger size.

The shoulder thing gets me. When I do it my guitar is too angled. Thus not being able to get a good pick attack.

I play mine with the nut just above shoulder height. When I'm playing bass though, it's far more extreme.

what about the angle towards your body?

I always end up with the guitar quite angled towards me, I try to correct and keep it more strait though as I figure that is better for posture, as well as it makes it easier to reach the lower strings
