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 (right handed play­ers) by plac­ing a footstool un­der the left foot. 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 are the Dynarette guitar cush­ion, the Gi­tano guitar rest and the Er­goPlay guitar sup­port.
