Because nu metal bands liked to play with their guitars at their knees.

i play with my guitar at the same height as it is when i'm sitting down because i'm used to playing like that. and it's difficult to do really far stretches, (which my music involves) when your guitar is really low.
#6
i dont know about you, but if i see a guitarist playing live holding it really high, i immediately dismiss them as being good, because seriously everyone knows if you look ugly, you suck.

Because it's easily to play technical stuff with your guitar higher up, easier to palm mute all the strings too. It makes it more like sitting.

My weirdest dream would have to be when I dreamed that I met this chick I really liked and wanted to practice sex, so I practiced on some guy I met at a gas station...that was pretty screwed up.

i like how he says "most" guitarists, and only names one example.

and not a very good example as well.

Yeah really. I assume he was talking about Jonny Fay, who isn't even in the band anymore.

maybe they were classically trained and adapted to having the guitar higher than usual

why are metal musicians prone to fatness?
Cause there music is heavy.

if they were classically trained they wouldn't be playing hardcore now would they?

this is becuase the guy from the Red Chord, Mike "Gunface" McKenzie, was actually a deep space starship pilot, and on one particular mission he was attacked by giant space squid, who if you dont recall can shoot laser beams out of their eyes, anyways, the squid attacked the ship and destroyed all hope

thats why he wears his guitar so high

Because if you wear your guitar below your waist, you're a ****ing faggot.
That's why.

Marty Friedman and Paul Gilbert wear their guitars low, and they>everyone on UG.

it doesnt matter how high or low you play your guitar, its all about preferances. either how the way it looks or how it feels. neither way sucks
#27
it's more comfortable. that's why

if you ask me, ppl with their guitar higher then their belt are used to play while sitting down... me personally like to wear it at my knees (or like 15 cms above) cause im used to practise standing up. I think its just a habbit. I suck when I have to play sitting down so even in guitar lessons... im the only one standing up :p

The only way yyou can call a guitarist hardcore is if he can go up and down the fretboard and make it sound good. ALSO FAST TOO! I luve fast.

Its obviously because super hard technical **** like the Red Chord is extremely easier to play when you're guitar is higher and it isnt dangling like an old lady's tits.

I know you're joking but Beneath the Massacre have some pretty high strung up guitars as well.

They're not talking about hardcore punk, they're talking about "hardcore." It has little in common with its roots in the '80s.

it's not the hardcore thing to do, it's the grindcore thing to do. i hate grindcore.

Yeah right, wearing your strap high or low is all preference, there are guitarists from every genre that wear it really high/low and the grindcore bit is just your way of bashing a genre you don't like, they don't wear their straps any lower or higher than hardcore guitarists.
