Thread Name: Sitting Or Standing
Subject: RE: Sitting Or Standing
I've noticed that blues bands tend to sit down for their acoustic sets and stand for their "electric" ones, as well. Of course, if they're going to play lap steel they need to sit.
Personally, I prefer to sit while playing the washboard so I can grip it between my thighs and play it vertically with one hand per side. I prefer to sing standing up, easier to dodge missiles and run for the door.
