How do you manage to play standing up for long periods without back ache? I recently bought a Les Paul and it's killing me. Weighed it and it's 11 pounds, maybe not too heavy but after a while you get seriously tense...

How do you manage with this? Do you have a certain stance, do you raise or lower the straps?

And yeah, don't take this thread too seriously... I'm just in the mood for a discussion on a boring day like this one
Just make sure you're not hunched over your guitar dude, or that'll be your problem.

dont be a whimp, dont complain, and stand shoulder width or more. never stand with your feet together and a heavy guitar, you might lose balance. I keep my strap sort of low, but dont keep it too low. just play around with your strap and posture until you hit the exact right position.
I'm up for building you a pedal.
