Sorry Steven. You're my idol and everything but that is not the way to carry a guitar.

Although these types of promotional photos look pretty cool, some guitarists actually try this only to hear their guitar crash to the ground.

The strap peg in the butt of the guitar can pull out very easily or the button holes on the strap can pull off the strap pegs.

The proper way to carry your guitar is in it's case. If you have a case with undependable latches, walk with the case lid placed next to your leg so if it opens accidentally, the lid will open into your leg and the guitar will not fall out as easily.
