I've relized that we have (For some strange reason) quite a tall population here at guitar tricks...
So the question is how tall are you? How much do you weigh etc?

Right, I'm 5 foot 7 (sigh), and I'm about 168lb (84 kg).. yep I've put on loads of wieght recently (i used to a slim muscular 73kg, but now i look like "a turkish weight lifter").. but it'll all come off.. heheh... in one big crap...
I've got tiny hands, I mean even for some one my size, but luckly I got hands like rubber, and find no real problem in streching (but the naggin question is will it stay that way in my old age?)... oh yeah I'll post a photo of me streching my cheeks to show you my "rubber skin", I think this is why I'm so strangly flexible.. even now when I'm so out of shape and unfit... I think i'm rubber...

I'm 6'4 (1m91) and I weight 290 pounds (120 kgs)
I have very large hands, and I look a lot like Baloo of Disney's Jungle Book. I'm bald, and every inch of my body is covered by hair (except my head, isn't it ironic...).

I used to play football (defensive tackle) so even though I am big, I am still pretty fit, and I can outrun a lot of my smaller friends (well, coming to a stop is another story)

I'm about 6'2, 170 pounds. I have long hair (past my shoulders) which I usually tie back or wear in a bandana. I mentioned that just to piss of lal ;) I'm pretty lanky and have pretty long fingers which make for fairly easy stretches.

I was once on the all-Ontario junior rugby team, I'm still not in bad shape because I play squash.

I feel like I'm writing an ad in the personals or something :)

I guess I have average hands.

Basicly a bean pole with a bass slung over it's shoulder.

I feel so short. I'm only 5'6" I'm about 175 lbs, medium sized hands (i can't do any major stretching). I'm only 17 so i still got a ways to go before before i lose my hair.
To improve technique and of course trying to keep all as clean as possible. I know my own limits and speed limits and so on I never play anything I'm not capable of. That wouldn't make any sense. After three years of playing I tried to play everything as fast as possible and that sounded, I would say, like shit, and I didn't realize that if I'd play bit slower things than I was capable of playing then everything would sound much better.

I'm 6'5". I don't really know how much I weigh cause I haven't gotten on the scale in a long time. Probably around 200-210.

And no! . . . I don't play basketball!

I get that question too.

This is shaping up to be the forum with the largest collection of scarred/lumped up heads (from hitting various assorted low hanging things) on the internet.

I've actually gotten by without too many head-jarring incidents. However . . .

Get this - You know those little arms that hang down behind office building doors that make them close all nice and slow? I was walking into an office building and through the insurance company's door to sign for a health insurance policy when I slammed my head on one.

It's a good thing I hadn't signed for the policy yet, or they would've had a hefty claim.

I'm 5'9" and my weight.... well.... Let's just say the guitar looks really small when play it :)

It's much easier to jump over me than go around and yes I have my own zip code :) but thanks for asking

Fairly skinny 5'11 with an "all too comfortable" spread ameks me between 65 to 70kg. My hands are quite big for my size, but a lot of that is in my palms, meaning I tend to like a guitar with a bit of a neck to it.

5'9", 210 lb. Not much hair left on top, but the rest is shoulder-length. I've got small hands, so I can't stretch much, which is why I was content to sell my '62 Strat.
