Tech­nique Fo­cus Sit­ting Pos­ture

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Classical -

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.
