    I don't have experience of playing guitar in standing group performances too I have used armless chairs....

    yesterday i bought a guitar strap n when i tried to play...whoaa!!! i couldn't even switch chords perfectly....i could only judge the position of the strings...hell...the experience was nearly like when i started learning guitar...

    is it difficult to play such a thick guitar in standing position?? I have to bend to see the strings....still i'm not able to play correctly even my mastered stuffs... :'(

    Yes, while standing up you will have less chance of seeing the fretboard.
    And if your guitar is a fat one (like dreadnaught) then "fat chance" seeing the frets!

    You should practice with your eyes closed, or possibly looking ahead at imaginary audience.

    In addition to what everyone said, make sure the strap of the guitar is not too low...I know that is what "rockers" do but maybe that isn't the best way to start. Keeping the strap short makes the guitar be in a position which is familiar...slightly higher than the waist. That should make life is a disaster with the girls though.
