"I variously use a foot stool(i am a classical guitarist), a strap, or cross my legs. I prefer not to use a foot stool with my baroque guitar, but sometimes I find myself doing it."

The way you hold your guitar: your reasons

Hello community!   I would like to start this topic about your personal way to hold your guitar. Either you use a strap, a foot stool, by crossing your leg (which of them), a modern support or even some alternative ways, could be interesting to read your reasons about it since, we all know, the vibrations of the woods take big responsibility of the sound that your guitar produces, caused by the way you hold your instrument.Thank you.:)See More

Right hand pinky: go away tension!

Hello everyone! I'm not sure if this topic has been touched before but I'm having an issue with my right pinky. (For those who play without rest it on the soundboard) When I'm playing arpeggios (in particular pim, pimi) or scales, my pinky holds too much tension and becomes rigid sometimes extended, others flexed. Also when I move to the piano, and in fact, when typing on my PC keyboard happens, too. I'm very concerned because I believe it's giving me problems on accuracy and I feel very…See More

Jelma van Amersfoort replied to Víctor M. Gallardo's discussion Now without nails
"Hello Victor, I have played without nails for about 16 years now, after many years playing professionally with them. For me it took about a year to adjust. I find it is very important to find suitable strings, either gut or something like old-style…"
