Is a guitar strap necessary?

Most guitar players think that they don’t need a Guitar Strap because they are playing sitting down. This can be partially true for acoustic guitar players (as the shape of their instrument helps them keeping it in the correct position) but it’s completely false for electric guitar players.

3 Tips to learn how to play with your strap while standing up:

1. Do not start with the guitar on your knees. While it looks cool to sling the guitar low like Jimmy Page, this is not the best position to START. Try starting with your guitar fairly high and then, once you got used to it, lower it one inch per week more or less until you are at a position that is both comfortable to be in and cool to watch.

2.  If your guitar is too heavy, use a wider strap to reduce the pressure on your shoulder.

3.  Stand up while you practice. If that’s easy, then try to walk around 😉 (pay attention to the furniture…)

And remember to have fun!
