I wanted to take the time to talk to you about how you can add a guitar strap to an acoustic guitar. A lot of people think this is really complicated, but it isnt. I know that some of you are going to have the hardware already on the guitar. In that case, youre not going to have anything to do. You just snap the strap on and youre ready to go. The problem is that a lot of guitars are designed to be played sitting down. This means that they dont have the hardware on them. This means that youre going to have to pay someone to add them or youre going to have to add them yourself.
Adding them yourself isnt that hard. The first time can be a little scary, but it isnt that hard. The first thing you need to do is go down to your local music store and pick up the hardware for a guitar strap. It should be relatively simple, consisting of knobs and screws for them. The hard part comes when you use the drill. Get a drill bit that is slightly smaller than the screw you have for the hardware. You go with the smaller size, so the screw will actually hold in the hole.
At this point youre going to drill a hole into the head of the guitar and the bottom of the guitar. It is really easy doing the head because you basically cant mess it up. The bottom requires you to be very careful. You must drill into a solid board and not the area where the sounds are produced. At this point all you have to do is screw in the hardware and youre ready to go.
