ddw Adding a Guitar Strap (20) RE: Adding a Guitar Strap 12 Apr 04

Hi Pyewacket,

Had to answer this — I used to have a cat by that name. Not original, I know — but I was a theater student at the time.....

Re the strap question; I infinitely prefer a button on the heel of the neck. It lets you balance the guitar at exactly the angle you like it and it affords complete access to the fretboard. I find the ones attached at the head or just behind the nut get in the way of your chording hand and/or a low-frets capo. As for the quick-release gizmos, I think they're a waste of money. If you have a button on the heel, just unbutton it and flip it over your head. Easier than hunting for another dangling end....
