    I'm am days away from hip replacement. Wish me luck. Still, as a newbie, who has no plans of gigging, what is the advantage of standing and playing?

    All my best for your operation.

    Speaking only for myself here:

    1) I rarely perform for any audience, but I try to always be ready.

    2) Adjusted for height, for me a guitar hanging from a strap is in the most comfortable position, for right and left hand alike.

    3) I have a thing for straps. I choose each one carefully to match up with each guitar, and once it's on it stays on. I think of it as part of the guitar.

    Sudden discovery!

    I left this shower bench straddling the bathtub for a week or so longer than I really needed it. I was just ready to haul it out to the garage for the next trip to Salvation Army when I thought to myself...hmm....

    It's strong, comfortable, lightweight, portable, adjustable, waterproof... there's room for a coffee cup or book, and a natural notch for the guitar neck. I forget now, but it might have cost a hundred bucks. If she can't stand the ugly maybe Mrs. Thought will sew me up some drawstring covers for the seat and back.

    Or maybe I'll put it on the deck; we have uglier stuff than that out there already!

    I have both: a wooden barstool and a steel folding chair.

    The barstool is not as comfortable as the steel folding chair, but it allows free movement.

    The steel folding chair is more comfortable, and lower, but ateral movement is more restrictive.

    A desk chair with no arms and wheels (holding my LP). It has served me well for many years.

    I prefer something low to sit on, like a blues jr.

    Honestly, I stand most of the time.
