Just found that the edit function disappears after awhile or I would have edited the previous post. I don’t want to clutter this thread with me me me, but one more observation: in order to correctly reach the low B string and E string an octave up, where it really sounds like an upright, it turns out the way to hold the instrument is in a similar position to where an upright would be if you were playing one! The headstock is not down by waist or belly or chest, but up by my head. It’s making me think about finding some way to modify a strap button to better facilitate that, without distorting the strap hole. Perhaps I can learn something from the way the Chapman Stick and Warr Guitar are held/strapped.
