Hey,

I've been having trouble playing electric guitar standing up. So, I shortened the strap. Is this about the right height?

PS - Just got this new guitar. Whatd'ya think?

It's a personal preference, no one can tell you what's right

Just wear it wherever is most comfortable for you.

No, I dont think there's a specific height, It's what feels best? i also have trouble playing standing up but ive read its just whats comfortable, but DO NOT have it down to your knees! haha I find it looks retarded and is hard to solo.

That's fine for all intents and purposes, but you might want to drop it a little lower. It looks kinda dorky, no offense.

BTW, that is a nice looking guitar!

As everyone else has said, w/e feels comfortable but your probably having trouble because your hand takes on a whole new position when you stand up. If you want to work on that position even when your sitting down, instead of resting the guitar on your right knee, change it to your left knee. I forget who used this position but its also sweet for playing classical. I think it may have been Micheal Angelo but i cant say for sure...

whatevers comfortable. i never had lessons so im STILL changing the way i hold it now, 3 years down the line. it differs, just adjust accoridngly. i find a nice mid-point, where its loose but still easy to play is best. but maybe whilst youre starting higher is easier, and then you can change it and make it lower when you get more comfortable. entirely down to you.

That looks a little high to me but whatevers comfortable, btw it takes a bit of practice to get used to anyway.

Like everyone else said, whatever's comfortable.

And shouldn't you know things like this if you're spending $2200 on a Gibson LP Standard?

There really is no correct height. It's all personal preference.

That guitar is very nice man.

But really, its up to you. Angus Young has his guitar at his nipples, and no one makes fun of him. Most people have it lower than what you have right there, but if it feels better right there and you can play better there, keep it there.

that sucks, you own a gibson and i just have a hohner

i just own a hohner too
most of my friends thought they only made hohner harmonicas
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

too high for me, and i'm not one to play very low
I'm not racist.

I hate everyone the same.
