The Strap

Recently I acquired a new guitar – a nice instrument built in 2015 by Martin Šuk, a luthier from Poděbrady in Central Bohemia. A new instrument usualy inspires its owner to increased practising and in my case it had also led to a renewed pondering on how to hold the guitar. As the use of the footstool is damaging my lower spine and various supports don’t feel stable enough, I had come to a guitar strap.*)   I realized that perhaps the most interesting aspect of it is that it enables you to play while standing without drilling any holes into the body of an expensive guitar.

An example of how to use the strap can be seen here:
