Subject: RE: Looking for a beautiful guitar
Interesting option, Graham.
It wouldn't apply to me very much since my main working axe is a thinner bodied Guild electric-acoustic and I usually switch a lot between guitar and mandolin anyway, but it looks like a technique for less strain on the shoulder for sure.
How is it for stability? Does it slip around when you move a lot (`cause I move a lot when I play). Also, I'm a flatplicker (I keep my fingernail trimmed short and could never get used to finger picks, so my fingerpicking is pretty muted) and often strum pretty furiously; It looks like that cord going across the guitar face would get in my way. Besides, my strap attaches to a button at the neck heel.
But thanks for the heads up on your solution.
