Hi all, I know this may seem like a relatively overused subject but I’ve had multiple readers asking me how to put on a guitar strap.


How To Put On A Guitar Strap


For many new players, it’s an important part of learning, and being comfortable while you learn too, so see below for my instructions on how to put on a guitar strap:


Putting on a guitar strap is a simple process. Here are the steps to follow to learn how to put on a guitar strap:

  1. Locate the strap buttons on your guitar. These are typically located on the bottom of the guitar body and the upper side of the guitar neck.
  2. Attach one end of the strap to the strap button located on the bottom of the guitar body. Slide the hole in the strap onto the button and pull it down until it clicks into place. Make sure that the strap is securely attached to the button, as this will help prevent the guitar from falling off while you’re playing.
  3. Hold the guitar by the neck and gently slide the other end of the strap onto the strap button located on the upper side of the guitar neck. If your guitar doesn’t have a neck strap button, you can attach the strap to the headstock of the guitar.
  4. Adjust the length of the strap to a comfortable position. The length will depend on your height and personal preference. Generally, the guitar should hang at waist level or slightly above.
  5. Once you have adjusted the length of the strap, securely fasten the strap using the strap buckle or any other fastening mechanism that is provided with the strap.

If you follow these steps exactly, then you should have no problem with comfort on your new guitar straps and you’ve successfully learned how to put on a guitar strap.


Next: Let’s Talk About My Favorite Chords While We’re Here.

The GM7 (G Major 7) guitar chord is a four-note chord consisting of the following notes: G, B, D, and F sharp. To play the GM7 guitar chord, follow the below steps:

  • Place your first finger on the second fret of the A string (the second from the bottom)
  • Place your second finger on the third fret of the high E string (the top string)
  • Place your third finger on the fourth fret of the D string (the fourth from the bottom)
  • Play all four strings from the bottom up (the thickest string being the bottom one)

Your fingers should be in a slight curve, and make sure that you’re not muting any of the strings with your fingers that are not playing the notes and you should be all good.

The resulting sound should be a full and rich Gm7 guitar chord, which is commonly used in various genres of music, including jazz, pop, and rock. The Gm7 guitar chord can be integrated into many different sounds, so make sure you check out some of the Gm7 guitar chord videos on youtube about how to integrate this guitar chord into different genres.
