Yeah, I get crap for wearing the guitar up high. I sound better though.

I play my guitar pretty high, but I play bass with the strap as small as it can go. I look like an idiot with it that high, but I can play better than all but one of my bass-playing friends.

...LOL, Yes I too play with a higher than cool height, its just more comfortable that way, and my hands don't cramp up. Maybe its an arm length thing?? Everyone knows that sitting and playing guitar is comfortable right? (classical concert guitarists) so take that position and stand up... BAM! Its the way high guitar playin guy!

I play mine as high as Tom Morello and that guitarist from The Strokes. I don't care about how "uncool" I look, as long as what's coming out of the amplifier sounds like pure sex.

playing guitar low gives you less control

with the exception of james hetfield back in the 80's. during the ...and justice for all tour I especially noticed that he had to practically crouch down to play. watch creeping death on youtube, he looks like he's constipated.

but he doesnt miss a note

I play my bass up high, with a warwick it's just easier to rock out that way, I hated it banging into my knees!

Well, I don't play my "guitar"(bass) that high up, but I play it high enough compared to most whereby it's comfortably holding my man tits (but not right under them).

Yeah, I've noticed that. I hold it kind of upright, so I can fret easily, but keep my wrist straight on my right hand.

really? usually, people play bass fairly high.

I play my guitars high. It give me much better control over my left hand.
I do, however, play bass really low. It's easier to play with my wrist straight, and if I have it up high, I have to bend my wrist.
