I'm a complete novice here, but I found your posts about posture and guitar positioning very interesting.
In the line directly below, I'm quoting another post (but can't figure out exactly how to use the quote function
"The catalogue of players incapacitated by traditional posture is considerable. "
Can you tell me more about this....?
That was me
Greetings Steve, Thank you so much for your response.
Here I go trying the quote function........
"....Some of them will have picked up difficulties related to posture which may well only start to kick in and hurt badly in their 30s or 40s.
Equally, a high proportion of even the still successful ones will at some stage experience some postural issues and/or over-use issues, again often after a couple of decades in the job."
OK, so it looks like this is a problem that will never concern me. I have no ambitions to stage performance, indeed, I'm still working on "Old Mac Donald."
Plus, I'm already older than zip codes
I am intrigued by the "almost vertical" position as well as the end point that "Intune" mentioned.
As for using a cheap guitar to try the end point, no problem here. I'm pretty sure that I'm holding the least expensive guitar known to humankind.
Also, it looks as though I will have to work a little on the whole quote thing.
Thank You Again!
