It doesn't matter how you look, its about the skill.

And as for that crack at bassists...

Alternatively, have your friends hold him down, then take a dump in his mouth, make sure your genitals don't touch him though, that's gay.

What is it with everybody being against looking cool while playing?
I don't get it.
I enjoy watching players that look good...unlike all these new bands who play up under their chins.
It's a little something called "style", which has sadly been forgotten.

nothing wrong with having your guitar "high up"

however if you really can't live with it, your wrist will come round eventually. I remember struggling when i first started playing standing up, it will come with time.

I'm not against style or whatever.
But I'd rather see someone play good and wear their guitar high than someone play crappy and look like the coolest thing since the fonz

well it really does suck...my left hand bends but my right hand is like messed up...

Why is it "stylish" to wear the guitar low as opposed to high? Sounds "retardedish".
#10
well lets put it this way...it looks retarded when your guitar is a little high, and your elbow is kinda angled towards your stomach rather then how you would expect.

try worrying more about how you sound than how you look....if it's bothering you that much then go back to Guitar Hero.

well fall out boy must be, like , the coolest band ever if were going by your standards. and besides you listen to music not watch it. as for the actual topic, try playing up high on the neck, which makes you bend your wrist more, and will eventually loosen up your wrist

How old are you? Serious question. If you're still growing then forget about looking like your favourite band. Adults are obviously a lot bigger and so they have longer fingers, which enables them to have their instrument lower and not have to bend their wrist very much.

There's nothing wrong with lowering your guitar to look cool, but if you have to bend your wrist in a retarded way, then that just looks stupid.
