So a friend of mine came over the other day and played on my guitar a little bit.He adjusted the strap to make it higher up. I decided just now to try playing standing up, since I haven't in a while. I found that it was a lot higher than normal, and that I could play just as well as I can sitting down. My queston is though, does playing with it this high make me look like a douche?



That's my mouse in my right hand, by the way. I had to click to take the picture, but I wanted it to look like I was playing.

PS I don't think this is spam..But if others feel that it is, I will delete this.

Thanks for the help

Lower it a little bit, make The buckle rash actually on the middle of the guitar.

haha no. i play with my strap higher than that. why would a higher strap make you look like a douche, especially if it makes it easier for you to play.

Forgive my ignorance (I'm dreadfully tired), what do you mean?

you actually seem like more of a douche for asking that question.

Nope. I think Mikael Akerfeldt and John Petrucci play that high, and they by no means look like douches.

everyone has their own opinion but having it that high wouldnt bother me any... if you can play good music then hell you can have it around your neck for all i care... looks fine their

I hold it lower cause that's what is comfortable. If that height is good for you, then there is no need to ask.

looks fine

two of my friends play that high, but one plays blues/country (suits the style) and one plays christian hardcore so he can spin and jump around

but lowering it to the crotch level looks cooler imo

All the cool indie bands do it. Seriously though, it's what's comfortable for you.

high guitar = this guy knows what he's doing
low guitar = this guy is trying to compensate for his lack of talent by trying to look cooler

the choice is yours

If it's comfortable, do it. That's the most important part.

I personally like to keep mine lower (It feels better for my right arm for some reason), but it looks fine. It doesn't really look that high.
#36
I usually play so the center of the guitar is between my bellybutton and crotch.

But you don't look like a douche at all.

Spamwise, that is Tony Iommi level. You are in good company.
