Thread Name: Help needed from guitarists
Subject: RE: Help needed from guitarists
I sit down to play guitar. I feel when sitting down I am singing TO people rather than AT them.
I only look at the frets for something new or a less used tuning. Occasionally I'll put the one foot up as a half way house.
Standing does help breathing and I do stand for most unaccompanied songs.
I've bought recently (after much seeking) a high teacher style chair in light steel tubing fron B&Q which is utterly stable and brings me to about standing height. Of course this is only practicable to take on bookings.
Martyn Wyndham Read always sits down to play the guitar, so does Peggy Seeger.
