A guitar strap is a useful and important accessory to have for you and your musical instrument. Guitar strap must be chosen carefully, taking into account many details and nuances: the mechanism of attachment, size, and even manner of performance. An important factor is the material from which the accessory is made. The most common are leather and fabric guitar straps. You should also make sure that the strap is soft, doesn't rub on your shoulder and keeps the instrument in the right position. A leather guitar strap is the most comfortable.
The need to attach the guitar to the player’s body by fixing a strap to the guitar’s endpins goes back a long time. In the early days of guitar playing it was normal for a performer to be seated – 19th century instruments didn’t include endpins. In the 20th century this changed. Straps were some way behind guitar technology until the mid 1950s when things got a little more exciting in the width, shoulder comfort and style departments. And that coincided with the heavier solid body electric guitar entering with rock ‘n’ roll with a second strap button – and the nature of guitar performance changing to become a truly lead instrument. By the mid sixties leather straps with thicker padded shoulder parts were a common sight.
Among the well-known manufacturers of guitar straps are Dunlop, D'Andrea, Planet Waves, etc. Length is another essential feature to look for in your search for a guitar strap. If you play your guitar at arm's length, you'll want a longer strap to accommodate your reach. With such a wide variety of options and features available, you're sure to find a guitar strap that best suits your image and the style of music you play. After that, all you need to focus on is playing.
