I used to wear a strap when i only had guitar because i didnt want it to fall even when i was sitting .I still do now because just got used to it , so I was wondering ,does anyone else use a strap sitting down???

I don't use a strap when sitting down. It's so much of a hassle to put the strap on and off after and before playing considering I always put my guitar back in its case.

Nope. It gets in the way alot for me when I am sitting down and gets all twisted and then when I stand up it pulls itself off.

Yes because I switch between sitting and standing a lot.

I always have my strap on. I have strap locks so I dont like taking them off every time. Its a waste of time.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

Yes, because I usually play really high up and can't reach that height by just resting the guitar on my knees.

My Straps are always on my guitars. Sometimes when sitting down I will remove it, but usually I will just put it round me as if I was standing and playing.

Strap is attached to my guitar and stays there. It's become part of her! ^^
And she looks soooo beautiful with it.

...and seriously, if the strap gets in your way while sitting, just have it hang down between your legs, so not on your shoulder.
No pun intended.

I definately use the strap while sitting down, due to the guitar being a V and all, it kinda falls forward so I use a strap to keep it in place.

As for acoustic, I never use a strap.

It seems like most people here either...

a) dont wear a strap while sitting
or
b) wear a strap because of laziness

laziness FTW!

I always leave my strap on, I find it comfortable, plus if I get REALLY lazy I can slouch on my couch and play guitar without worrying it'll slide off my leg.
