I wear it as low as I can (for maximum attack while using a pick) while still being to fret all notes comfortable and play fingers with precision... so for me that's about the neck joint right below my navel.
I find that too low makes it difficult to fret higher notes, and too high makes it uncomfortable to fret low notes.

Its the same with guitar, it looks real cool having it as low as you can possibly handle, but it stops you from being able to reach or play anything technical. Its all good if you are playing very simple bass or guitar, otherwise wearing it higher has to be done

i wear it right below my chest. If you have it high and you play fingerstyle then it makes a little easier and lets your right hand relax!

how high?

im sure i probably look like a dork with my bass up at my chest, but i could care less, plus having your bass a little higher allows for better economy of motion and as was mentioned earlier allows you to play more technical stuff. i suppose its easier to wear it low if you play with a pick though.

When i see a bassist with his strap high i usually assume that he KNOWS what hes doing, and i think it looks cooler (which is besides the point), and it is more comfortable and easier to play anything.

I agree...I have my bass down to my knees... My picture is in my profile..it may be a tad over exaggerated..but you get the idea.

I don't know about you guys, but I wear my bass like a thong. Which is usually why you guys think I have a bug stuck up my ass.

Because in reality, i just have an oversized instrument incorrectly positioned up the back door.
