Do you wear your guitar high and look like a twat but can play just as well standing up as sitting down

Or

do you wear your guitar low even though it makes playing more difficult

mid to high. and i think people look like a twat with it at their knees. its all about comfort. too high feels weird, too low feels like im 15 again trying to be cool impressing people.

Mine is relatively low anyway because I am an ogre, lol. My strap is almost maxed out and it's still about waist level. Nice and comfy and playable

I have no trouble playing my guitar low as well as I do when I'm sitting down. That's why I practice standing up.. I have mine around Van Halen/Alexi Laiho level. Not kneecaps, but not covering my nipples either.

No, you people are wrong when you say it doesn't matter what you look like on stage. People are there to see a show.


agreed, the way I see it, the fact that you're standing up in the first place is for show, i mean other wise you COULD play sitting down on stage but that would suck

I wear electrics about belt level so I can get some hips into it. I wear my acoustic about belly button.

The way I have it is where I sit down, and tighten it all the way on my sitting down position, and when i stand up, it's in the exact same place. Works pretty well.
It's like Superman reading the teachings of Jesus. The two greatest musicians on Earth hath combined forces. I officially quit music, as it has reached it's zenith with that cover.

What about Tom Morello? He has his guitar pretty high up when he plays live, and still rocks out and doesn't look like a twat.

Personally, I have mine close to the same height when I'm standing up as when I'm sitting down. A bit lower, but then it doesn't make practicing whilst sitting down redundant because of a massive difference in guitar height, and therefore wrist action.

i like a nice middle ground. some people look like twats if the guitar is slung too low ie at the knees.

Reasons I play with the guitar up high:

1. I love John Petrucci.
2. I'm a nerd.
3. If I get a stiffy on stage, I want people to know it.

I wear it under my belt buckle. Doesn't restrict my playing and I can move around better.

Usually when I play, my pick is at or slightly above my belt buckle. Though just for kicks, I let my strap out to full length for a bit. It feels really weird that way.

Uh low
but not too low, or I can't seem to play right.

I don't like the high look, especially when you are playing metal >.>
and now, if I have it too high it doesn't feel right.

As if, Tom Morello looks like a massive twat, he dosen't rock out just bobs around like a douche.

Waist level I guess. I'm probably sacrificing a small amount of playability but I always practice standing so I don't really notice.

I wear mine terribly high ..like right below my chest. My guitar is extraordinarily heavy (see the god damn pics!) so higher up supports it better.

Plus I gotta say..Convenience > Looks
