I practice a lot sitting down but when I can't play as good standing up. I'm having a whole lot of trouble tremolo picking while standing up. While sitting down, the guitar is horizantal and my pick is parallel with the strings, but when I attempt to tremolo pick standing up, the guitar is tilted up slightly so I can't tremolo pick at all... and if I stand up and hold it horizantally it looks weird and feels awkward... my tremolo picking is very clean while sitting down but super sloppy while standing up and the same goes for all my lead playing... any tips besides practice standing up?

Just adjust your strap to a point where it is at the same level as it would be if you are sitting down.

Play with your guitar higher on the strap?

or just practice.

Dont try to look cool so adjust your trap where you think feels right.

For tremolo picking i tilt my guitar a bit, guitar hero style (to get the star power?) It evens out the angle issue.

Lol looking cool comes from the point that you've practiced enough to be playing well with the guitar slung low, no need to be sissying there.

playing standing up takes getting used to. i had the same issues along with trouble playing triplets and hitting the right strings.

it just takes practice and time playing standing up. i try to play mostly standing up for that reason.

For me it was kinda hard getting used to standing up, but then I started to play in the classical position while sitting down. Now, I can't play with the guitar on my leg anymore as I don't have as much freedom and range with my left hand to play.
