How low do you wear you're guitar?

I'm interested in knowing this, how low do you wear you guitar when standing? (how long is the strap)

I wear mine about so that the pickups are in beltbuckle hight. Any lower than that and my wrist will hurt after about 5-7 minutes of playing.

anyone so necro and grim and wear it as low as zakk or heatfield?

pickups at my dick.
its the most comfortable there.
probably cause i wank stood up.
i cant play the E,A or D strings above the 12 fret, but if i want to be able to play them i have to look like a penguin with the strings six inches under my chin.

the rest of my playing isnt affected

I wear mine above my belly button. I find it's the best position. You can roll around and still play accuratly.

Yeah, pickups around the belt buckle is decent. Anything lower and it starts getting in to that punk style. Can't have that.

out of interest how many of you lot play with a classical left hand finger style, ie thumb in the centre of the neck and fingers perpendicular to the strings?

i dont. my left hand is very heavily set into the 60's style hendrix type fingering.
i can do either but prefer that way

i try and get my left hand perpendicular, like when i play power chords but i find myself getting out of that position when i move on the the high strings, i suppose practice, practice and a bit more practice will sort that out.
