Thought it would be interesting to see peoples thoughts on how guitars should be worn. Personally, I changed my strap setting so that I've got it around my chest. I found it's a lot easier to play while standing, but sometimes I look a bit of a goon. laugh.gif

So, what do you guys think???

Somewhere in between super high and super low, lover stomach kind of. I find that most comfortable, I don't like having the guitar super high somehow.

I find it easier to play and a bit more comfortable wearing my guitar a bit high. It's very Tom Morello smile.gif
