Hold­ing your gui­tar

The clas­si­cal gui­tar needs to be held cen­tral to your body with the neck point­ing in an up­wards di­rec­tion to achieve a po­si­tion that al­lows op­ti­mal tech­ni­cal fa­cil­ity of both hands. The main meth­ods for hold­ing the gui­tar in this slightly el­e­vated po­si­tion are: 1) place your left foot on a foot­stool (right-handed play­ers) with the un­der curve of the gui­tar rest­ing on your left thigh, which should nat­u­rally place the right hand (pick­ing hand) on the strings close to the sound­hole. And 2) rais­ing the gui­tar us­ing the Gi­tano gui­tar sup­port or the Er­goPlay gui­tar rest.
