What is the reason why holding the guitar is different when you see a flamenco player contra a classical guitar player?
I assume there are some technical reasons, but what is the advantages?
It is easier to play the abinico technique, right legged with the bicep touching the upper bout of the guitar. It allows a rotational turn of the right forearm. This technique is done all the time in flamenco guitar. Once you get good at it, you can play flamenco from a variety of positions including the classical position. It just isn't commonly done. It is good for your body to be able to play in a variety of different seating positions anyways...
