Hi David,David_Norton wrote:"From personal painful experience", having the head of the guitar so high forces your left arm to be elevated at the shoulder, and your left elbow extended from the body. I played like this for many years, but Father Time eventually demanded payment. I now am forced to play at a much lower position.
It is not an exact copy, but heavily inspired by early romantic guitars http://www.earlyromanticguitar.com/, this particular by Rene Lacote.gringo wrote:Nice performance. Your guitar looks unusual. What is the story behind it?
I have several videos on YT, channel is "davinort". I try to keep my left elbow no more than 45 degrees out from the torso. Your elbow is closer to 60 to 80 degrees out in this video, for much of it. By bringing the neck angle down so the first fret is at shoulder height, the problem (for me) resolves.Marek Cupak wrote: Hi David,
thanks for your recommendation. I'm always very open to the questions regarding ergonomics! A crucial problem, I think (hence the strip, no footstool, no support). How much do you mean by the "much lower position"? Have any pics or videos?
