I use an Ergoplay Troster.dory wrote:I use a Dynarette occasionally. The problem is that it is not quite high enough. I actually wrote to the Dynarette company on behalf of several users on this forum (including me) asking them to consider making a larger model with no response. I gave up and got a Barnett support and have played happily ever after.
It helps me to empty my trouser pocket (keys, etc.), to sit up straight and hold the guitar close to my body. Once my guitar is balanced (no hands), I wrap my arms around it. I don't think you should lean forward to your guitar, let it lean against you.gary-n-la wrote:Due to thigh pain, I've had to abandon my years-long practice of using a footstool under my left foot when playing. I've transitioned to the Dynarette cushion, but I'm not loving it yet. It just doesn't feel as stable as the footstool arrangement. Can you Dynarette users advise me - is there a key to it? Should I be leaning against the guitar, pushing it forward and down into the cushion to make it more stable? Or is there some other technique?
Yes, it slips occasionally, and inserting a rubbery material between the tight rest and your trouser is the most immediate solution. This is the product I bought: A bit pricey, though...lucy wrote:...
At home, on my own chair, I do find it slips, occasionally, when wearing certain trousers, but I think this may be more to do with faulty posture - I think I may, at times, pull the guitar towards me, with my right arm, so this causes the instrument to move on my left leg.
At other times, when I have no choice of chair, I sometimes find it slips, simply because the chair is too high, so my leg slopes anyway. So, very recently, I've started to tape a bit of rubbery material to the underside of the Ergoplay, where it meets my leg. I think the stuff is carpet, or tray grip material. I got it from a fabric shop. It works a treat!
