When you're playing standing up, where's your guitar? Do you have it that way because you like how it looks? So you can play better? Do you ever compromise how comfortable it is to play so it looks cooler? (sorry! poll should read "waist" not wait)

For example:
"way up there!"

The Beatles (duh)

"lower..."

Jimi Hendrix (again, duh)

"My wrist hurts"

Nick Zinner

"the guitar straps are never long enough"/"I'm always slumped over"

The lower your guitar hangs on you, the more of a piece of **** you are. If you disagree, you are wrong.

My guitar sits about an inch or two below my crotch.

EDIT: About that last pic, they seriously don't make guitar straps long enough!

usually in between where Hendrix and Zinner have it. If it's too high, then fretting at the top of the neck is ackward, like my spelling that I'm too lazy too correct, but if it's too low, then I have a tough time hitting the high frets.

^I usually have it a bit lower than Hendrix in that picture, but still higher than Nick Zinner also. It's low enough I don't feel like I look stupid, but it's not too uncomfortable.

I have the upper horn about level with my hipbone. It actually is more comfortable for me there, because I hit the strings really hard and like to have the guitar at about arm's length so it's more comefortable to do so. I do raise it up a bit if I'm playing slide though.

about waist level normally, when soloing, it's like Morello

EDIT:

^ yeah, but I didn't feel like spending a ton of time searching for a better picture. It's more the bent-over style or sort of knees-bent style I was trying ot describe. Sorry.

i dunno where this pic was taken but i know that the drummer there was the guy who filled in for ringo when the beatles came to adelaide (in south australia) back in the 60s

i dunno if thats the only time he made an appearance with them or not, i think ringo wasnt there because he was sick or something.

my dad told me all this because he was there

Way up there.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.
