I voted low because it looks cooler but wearing it higher is better.....The belt area is the best....

My guitar is too neck heavy so I don't like playing while standing - But generally I prefer to have mine up higher than 'punk rockers' who have it on their knees
#15
I play bass low (below waist) but i tilt the neck up, and I play guitar really high.
#16
highh, when its low i cant reach the high frets on the Low E string... its a lot more comfortable for my hands when its high and i can play more accurately
<Raven> I got so baked last night
<Raven> that I WOKE UP high o_o

Low.

But some people make wearing it high look cool, e.g Tom Morrello, that guy from Battles, and the Beatles.

I wonder what famous guitarist wears it the highest, and vice verse, who wears it the lowest.

low looks way cooler but i think high is generally easier.

I havent played standing in a while until recently. I used to play high but for some reason i can play low pretty well now, so i think ill try riding with that for a while...

Play however is comfortable. Low does look way cooler though and personally I can't stand to have mine much higher than crotch level.

I think James Hetfield has him beat by a narrow margin. With James, you can clearly see his belt well above his guitar, and he has to slouch terribly just to reach the strings.

I wear my guitar about where John Petrucci wears his (pretty high) because the guitar being lower requires me to reach more and curve my wrist and hand to the point of technical hindrance and discomfort.

Jimmy Page Style


Yes! Jimmy Page style is the best. It looks cool and you can move around but its not too low to play either. You have to wear your pants high like him to make it look cooler though
