Buy a deOro - I am ecstatic I found something simple and cheap and far better than the Dynarette. You will appreciate having a far more stable support once you have tried it!

This is kind of funny. I did some trimming to the foam on my altered dynarette to change the natural angle of the guitar. Then I tried to play it and this small change seemed to put the guitar in a totally unnatural position. How could this little change be such a big deal? So I removed the dynarette and leaned over to grab my footstool for comparison. The footstool was easily located. It was under my left foot!! I am not kidding.

Anyway, I have decided that I am perfectly comfortable playing on a footstool and I don't really have a problem here that needs solving (I am not inclined to put anything on the outside of the guitar). So maybe I will buy a nicer footstool and be done with it.

My solution was to get a lower chair. 15 inches high seems to be just right for me. I have an Original Guitar Chair and an Adjustrite Musician's Chair by Vivo. Both are great.

It's nice to sit low enough so that your thigh is level and doesn't slope downhill.
