    Hi, @Namelyguitar -Buddy

    I usually keep my guitar strap on when seated so it doesn’t face plant if I need to stand and stretch .

    Usually on because my straps stay on my guitars with Grolsch washers. Kind of a pain to keep taking off and on

    I always sit to play these days and never use a strap.
    Never even thought of using a strap while seated, I’ll give it a try and see if it does anything.

    Those of us that play bass with those fingers outstretched might want to strap on. Plus, my Stingray is heavy!

    If you pay 2 hundred or 2 k for a guitar... always keep it safe. Unless your into destroying things.

    I usually sit and play. Strat is comfortable to sit and play for long periods. No need for strap when sitting. However, I recently bought a Jackson Rhoads which is not comfortable to sit and play. For that I need to use a strap. Break out the Ace Frehley/Rivers Cuomo lightening bolt strap for that puppy.

    I ALWAYS sling the strap, even if for some reason I laying down.
    And if I let another player (even if it's Stevie Ray) play one of my guitars---PUT IT ON.
    Do NOT drop that guitar and tell me "I'm sorry".
