Sit­ting Pos­ture

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: CLASSICAL -

An im­por­tant as­pect of tech­nique in clas­si­cal gui­tar play­ing is adopt­ing the cor­rect sit­ting pos­ture. The gui­tar is placed on the left thigh (for right-handed play­ers), which is raised by plac­ing the foot on a foot­stool or sim­i­lar. The left knee should be point­ing for­wards and the right knee to the side so the gui­tar rests on the in­side of the right thigh. The gui­tar should be po­si­tioned at an an­gle where the neck is point­ing slightly up­wards, and the right fore­arm rests on the larger bout of the in­stru­ment. This should hold the in­stru­ment se­curely in place and give ease of fa­cil­ity for both hands.
