    Hah. Cool. I like it too. I'm ~6'5" (197 cm?) tall, 250lbs so I'm pretty much a strat playin' dino myself. Fits me fine.

    Nah. Too lazy for sports.

    But the bonus is that I've got gargantuan hands. I can stretch from finger one on the first fret to finger four on the seventh on the same string with comfort. And that's with a 25" scale Strat.

    You got it. I can record something on Monday.

    I'll try to play something in G and stretch from fret 3 to 10 on the first string. And play a little legato from 3 to 8.

    While I have these huge hands, my weak point is chords. I only know a few. It's probably obvious from the recordings I've posted. I guess if I learned them I could play G+9 or Emaj13 chords rather easily.

    Hey, think about the great voicings you can do. You should check out the chord voicings by Allan Holdsworth and Tal Farlow.

    I'm not familiar with measuring you height in feet and such. I'm 1 meter and 80 cm , and it sounds a small compared to 5 foot 5... like a dwarf.
    A well. I guess a foot is not very long, or your all are very tall . I'll try measure the length of my feet later, and compare to my body length .

    oh and mattblack i think it was, yeah the extra inch mite help you with the 'laydies' (shielas!!! ) but cant see your face so i cant make a valid judgement!!!!

    What's up with this , everyone around here is 6 foot 5 plus. LOL. I thought it was pretty rare for someone to be that tall but it seems it is the benchmark for everyone around here. Oh well, i like my body, lean, scrawny and not that tall either.
