Man, now I will have Anti Flag in my head for at least the rest of the day.



I play probably just a little lower than McCartney height but not by a whole lot. It depends on the guitar though. I like being able to reach as much as I can. Not that I am really a proficient guitarist by any means.


What exactly about this photo says Anti-Flag out of curiosity?

cultural divide I guess... when I see it i think woody guthrie.



Saw Anti-Flag play at a unitarian church in towson with i-farm, remember being stunned in the mid 2000's when I heard them on the radio. Talk about rags to riches.

Really? I've never heard them on the radio. Then again, I remember they did have a pretty successful cd after underground network. I just kinda stopped listening to them by that point. My punk listening habits have died down a fair amount since mid highschool, however there are still a couple bands that make it into the player every few months.

That said, my work day is now revolving around youtubing old Anti-Flag songs.

They went huuuuuuuuuuge man. I was in vegas visiting my cousin once and they were headlining at the House of Blues. Unitarian church show to the fucking house of blues... makes me wish MakeWay had been a pop-punk band.

About this low seems to work for me...too much higher or lower just isn't comfortable for the way I play guitar. I have the strap much higher for playing bass funnily enough.

This high, apparently. Although I think I have it a bit higher than that now, it's around nipple-height. Makes our gigs look a bit lacklustre but this was the only photo I could find when you can clearly see how high it is...

i used to wear mine low, but i find much more comfort having it up high for some reason.
