    Thanks for your insight! I was thinking about this recently because of an upcoming audition.Standing is something all of us should work into our practice at least for a little while.Your right.. being in a band helps alot.

    How about adjusting the strap so that the guitar is in the same position on your body whether you’re sitting or standing? I want to be able to play my best either way and not have to edit my playing just because I’m standing. Having said that, I always seem to play better when I’m sitting because (I think) the weight of the guitar on the left shoulder does have an effect on the left arm and hand. What do you think?

    It’s like Paul says about players in bands.It’s something you get used to.Like you mentioned, just get a comfortable strap length and have at it.When you have to play something difficult find a way to steady it or yourself for the best possible approach.
