I have a strap pin on the neck where it joins the body of the guitar and was wondering if the above straps can be shortened enough to work or if you need to use the ties on the headstock. Richard Canada's comments seem to indicate it should work. Please confirm. BTW My wife and daughter both believe the tan rather than black strap suit my guitar better.

Comment by Richard Canada on November 22, 2011 at 1:59pm
Jud, the texture on the underside of the strap is rougher. My strap does not slip but I have mine attached to a button on the bottom side of the base of the neck of my guitar. Although the strap is designed to also tie onto the top of the neck of the guitar.
Comment by Jud Hair on November 22, 2011 at 12:15pm

@ Richard ... does the texture of the Seagull strap on the underside provide enough friction to help keep the guitar from slipping on your shoulder?  I'm looking for a strap that will help counter the weight of the neck, so I can concentrate on chords and not balancing the guitar.

Hi all, I bought the tan strap off eBay. Looks good with my seagull M6. It is suede texture and the pressed in design looks great. Rick

Hey Craig!  Glad to have you on board ... I haven't bought anything thru Godin store, but I had considered trying one of their straps as well.  To me, the tan would match better than the black.

The one thing that you may or may not appreciate as much as I do about your Seagull vs almost any Martin dread, is the nice roomy 1.8 inch nut.  A D-28 has a much smaller 1.69 inch nut. 

 I bought a Martin a few months ago, but I waited until they produced a dreadnought with a 1.75 inch nut.  All of the "Performing Artist" models have the wider nut.  Mine is the DCPA4 ...

Love my Seagull Maritime SWS SG. I have owned this beautiful looking and sounding guitar since July 2010. Sound gets sweeter every day I play it and that's usually every day. Had a Fishman Matrix Infinity Undersaddle Pickup System installed as mine did not come with the installed QI system. Since I've starting playing guitar (only 3 years ago) I have listed a Martin HD 28V as my dream guitar. Haven't got the dough together for that one just yet but if I ever do I am bringing my Seagull in to make a comparison prior to purchase. Has anyone purchase from the Godin store online. I was considering picking up a Seagull guitar strap but was wondering what the quality and fit was like. Can't decide if I would go with the black or tan strap either.

Charles ... suggest you also join this group specifically focusing on alternate tunings and pose the same question:

I suggest you check out Homespun Tapes http://www.homespuntapes.com/

They have a great DVD Open D collection. I bought several of their DVDs over the years and find them straightforward and very useful.  They also rate them by player Level.

I would like a CD that shows how to play open D I'm kind of slow so I need one that has like not for note or string for string.
