Yes, very true in some cases.
This is the Marshall Forum. We don't parlez vous Segovia.
I play sitting about 1% of the time! You can’t rock sitting! Imho, it’s also hard to rock with your guitar at your chest. Sling that bad boy where the upper bout is below your belly button ala Page, Slash, and anyone else who’s cool. LOL
I’ve never learned anything about rock guitar from a book, and if I read I should do something, I usually won’t. I don’t like to conform. RnR is for the non conformist. Anybody who thinks they know the “proper way” is full of shit. There are no rules!!!!!!!
Finding that rather goofy, I've always preferred this model posture as unarguably bad-ass:
Which nobody can deny,
Which nobody can deny,
Oh, he's unarguably bad-ass,
He's unarguably bad-ass,
He's unarguably ba-ad-ass ... ...
Which nobody can deny.
Left leg. I sit down with a footstool and do the classical position, I don't remember when I started doing it but it's the most comfortable for me. That said lately I started playing mostly standing up and I also found a happy medium for my strap height between looking like a dork and pretending I'm Slash/Page.
Do you play with a pick? or your fingers? Which is right? What ever feels right to you. That's the beauty.
That is called “the ball scratcher” for guitarist.
I play sitting due to a f@#ked up back,guitar rests on my left leg except when I'm rockin my Dean V.
Oh shit,I'm doing it wrong,no wonder I suck at this...LOL.
For me it depends on what type of guitar I am playing. Les Paul shaped guitars feel better on my left leg while strats or super strats ie Ibby's, Jackson's, esp's feel better on my right.
This is exactly how I do it. Used to have my guitar on the right leg, but with an LP, the weight was making it feel like it was falling off my leg.
For acoustic playing, I do play with the guitar on my right led.
For electric, with the guitar hanging in the middle, between both legs, I find that the position of the guitar is very close to being where it would be when I'm standing. So I find the benefit to be always playing with the guitar at a similar position and angle, whether standing or sitting.
Yeah just the acoustic (that I rarely play) sits on my left leg when I play.
Well, Page anyways....
only play sitting at nite while TV is on, or for precise stuff in studio, stand cause ..live that's what i have to do. Sitting does allow me to interact with fretboard easier tho and have been resting it on my left leg lately but put a SG right up on me for some reason...just throw that thing around VS other guitars
Had to think about that for a second. Left leg, most of the time. I'm usually on a stool, and it just feels a bit more natural. I do try and stand up every so often so I don't get too used to sitting.
