Just been having bit of a practice tonight. Anyway, had a bit of a moment, an epiphany, as it were, which I thought I'd share.
I've often seen people playing in different positions, classical, casual, almost lap steel style, standing etc and have had a bit of an issue in the past myself with playing an OM comfortably (fixed by using a properly adjusted strap). So I thought I'd have a go at trying to play the same piece (Andy McKee's 'For My Father' - man, does that put some tension on your A string and play havoc with tuning!) in different sitting positions on my L32.
To cut a long story short, I now understand why Andy plays standing up as he does and Antoine Dufour has his fancy strap. It appears to me that when playing fingerstyle, a more 'classical' posture with the guitar on the left leg with the headstock elevated doesn't half make things easier. Tried a number of different fingerstyle pieces, all with the same result. Old news perhaps to many here, but I've been an electric rhythm guitarist for so many years, I'd always naturally played low slung, so this is a really big thing to me.
So I thought I'd add a poll to see what everyone else does. (NB Any southpaws will need to transpose left and right.)
BTW, I think I am going to fall into the modified classical camp - have never been one to get on with footstools and that big ole jumbo sits very nicely on my leg.
