Transcript

We're going to talk about strapping on your bass guitar. You can get a guitar strap to strap onto the button at the top of the instrument. And then, strap onto the other button at the bottom. Give it a tug. Make sure they're both are secure. You can put it over your head. Rest it on your left shoulder. If it's too high, it might be restrictive. And if it's too low, it might be a lot of pressure on your wrist so, you want to find a spot where you feel comfortable. My litmus test for standing is if it feels like it does when I'm sitting then, it's pretty much going to be the same. I know that the guitar strap is comfortable for me when it keeps my guitar in the same position that it is when I'm sitting. So, I just try to sit and stand a few times. Make sure it feels comfortable. And then, you're ready to go. And that's the basics of strapping on your guitar.
