k so im not in a band that does gigs or anything so whenever im playing its usually sitting down

last night i played standing up and walkin around for probly 3 hours

i have an LTD kh-602 thats a lot heavier than any other guitar ive played

well, holding that around my shoulder for that long hurt then and it hurts now

so i was wondering if it stops getting sore after a few times or if its cuz i was holding it too low

get a thicker padded strap. or a pad that slips over the strap.

dunlop makes a pad that slips over. for a few bucks.

but i like a nice padded leather strap, cause then it helps support a headstock heavy guitar from a down tip too.

(also dont keep ur guitar so low, or ull hurt ur wrists too.)

Get a thicker strap.

And maybe work out a little?

EDIT: I agree with jj. Don't have the strap as long as it goes. Just because some guitarists play that way to look cool doesn't mean you should. I prefer my guitar low, but still high enough that I can play comfortably.

I did play with it super low for a while, and all that got me was sore wrists. My playing sounded much better just by bringing it up a few inches.

And I still look freaking awesome.

I was completely serious. It's not like getting some exercise will kill you. (Despite what the fatcats at McDonalds and Burger King will tell you).

Not only will you get healthier, you'll be able to support your heavy guitar for as long as you need to.

You'll adjust. I started on Les Pauls mainly so dealing with weight hasn't been much of an issue for me but yeah, they sure build your back muscles... Percevere brother!
Thanks for reading

Try bringing the guitar up higher...it might help.

Also, start practicing standing....in any guitar application, you'll have to be standing, so why practice sitting? After a few times, it should be fine.

If all else fails, get the pad everyone mentioned.
