Technique Focus Sitting Posture
When playing classical guitar, posture is extremely important in order for both hands to work efficiently. The traditional method is to sit up straight on the front edge of an upright chair and raise the left knee ( for right- handed players) by using a footstool. The guitar sits on the left thigh, and the head of the guitar tilts upwards. For long hours of playing, many people prefer to have both feet on the floor, keeping the pelvis level: good alternatives to the footstool include the Dynarette Guitar Cushion, the Gitano guitar rest and the ErgoPlay guitar support.
