Sitting or standing?

Kind of silly, I suppose, but...

Do you prefer playing guitar sitting or standing? Do you find any particular advantage in one over the other? I am grasping for whatever might help improve my scores! :o:)

    I like to stand. More because I actually feel like I am performing so my enthusiasm allows me to enjoy the music more. This also probably helps my score.

    I do better standing. I learned sitting down though.

    I've been playing standing ever since the little loading screen blurb came out that said "If you're sitting, you're not rocking!"

    Been playing drums exclusively for quite a while, and when I went for the guitar storyline, I tried sitting at first, and realized I couldn't play anymore while sitting :)

    I'm a stander, but my old roommate was an avid sitter. I guess it's just how it feels to you, if you haven't tried out both.

    Depends on the song. One i REALLY want to jam out to, i stand up move around and scream lyrics.

    I usually stand up and rock out, but if it's a more mellow tune, I'll sit back. I've been known to really get into a bass groove while sitting on just the arm of the couch in a bit of a funky pose, lol. So it's more about where / how you feel the music.

    At the very beginning I tried standing, but usually now I sit as it's more relaxing. I suspect it has a negative effect on my playing though, particularly because of my reach - I have long arms and I always feel a little cramped playing while sitting down. I should probably hoist my butt up off the couch.

    it's much easier to poo if you're standing. The effect of gravity is greater.

    For RB2, I sit.

    But for TB:RB, I stand since I'm also using the mic stand.

    When Rock Band: Poo *comes out, I will keep this advice in mind.
