What does every legendary guitarist have in common? They all use a guitar strap.

Every guitar player needs a guitar strap. They may not be as visually impressive as a guitar amp or evoke the same feeling of awe as a boutique effects pedal but they’re just as important, especially if you plan on playing your guitar standing up. Whether your play the electric guitar, acoustic guitar or bass guitar, with the right guitar strap you can play and perform with complete confidence. A quality strap is worth investing in because, as well as looking great, it’ll last you for many gigs to come.

How to attach a guitar strap?

To attach an electric guitar strap, you usually push the two strap buttons through the holes at each end of the strap. Once the strap is attached, hold the neck with your left hand (right hand if you’re left-handed) and the guitar strap with the other. Next, lift the strap over your head and rest the strap on your left shoulder (or right shoulder if you’re left-handed).

Some acoustic guitars only have one strap button, often located underneath the body. To accommodate this, you can buy a dedicated acoustic guitar strap that can be tied to the headstock.

Experiment with different strap heights to find the one that’s most comfortable for you. Some guitarists like Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro, Robert Fripp of King Crimson and Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes prefer their straps up high whilst other players such as Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin and James Hetfield of Metallica wear their guitars low.

Do all guitar straps fit all guitars?

Guitar straps are often universal, which means they can be attached to any electric guitar, bass guitar or acoustic guitar with two strap buttons. Some acoustic guitar straps have a hole for a strap button at one end and need to be tied to the headstock at the other. This is because a lot of acoustic guitars only have one strap button.

Are guitar strap locks worth it?

If you’ve ever played the guitar at a gig only to have your strap come off, you’ll know how awkward it can be. A guitar with strap locks will give you peace of mind and ensure your strap stays on, no matter how intensely you’re performing on stage. Put simply, strap locks are absolutely essential if you’re performing with your guitar.
