Thread Name: Sitting Or Standing
Subject: RE: Sitting Or Standing
Sitting down works best for me because I have enough gut to muffle the rather resonant backs of my guitars and mandolins, and I can never seem to stay on the mic when playing into it when standing. However, I can play electric guitar and bass quite comfortably standing up. Emphasis on one or the other posture doesn't have much to do with the music in my view, and either works as well as the other so long as the performer is comfortable.
Ever since I dislocated my shoulder I've had a bit of trouble with long periods with an instrument strap, but short periods aren't too difficult.
