    I’d certainly be able to keep them at a distance!

    Strange how those that most think are truly mundane go on for longest.

    I only sit when learning new licks from a YT video or whatever.
    I stand most of the time because thats how I'll play at a jam, etc.
    My left arm is bent more when sitting and its easier to vibrato.
    While standing its harder to do so I stand.
    I wear my strap when sitting and try to sit upright to give more of a standing feel.
    When standing my Strat is in the middle of my belt line.
    Like Trower:

    I have no input on the OP's original question...I'm just glad I'm not the only one that mis-types it "startocaster"

    How did Fender miss the opportunity to name an entry-level student guitar the Startocaster???

    Not at all. He’s asking for instructions, you provided some. Another member asked the OP for pics of how he’s sitting. This is a actual problem I guess so pics would help of how you sit in a chair and hold a strat. Just trying to help now like everyone else.

    It’s also a joke thread for the last 9 pages so maybe lighten up a bit.

    It was tough, but I finally found rubber pants for a Telecaster. Now what do I ask for in return?
