  • Do you practice standing or sitting?

    I always play standing. Practice or not I am always standing while bringing the pain that is my guitar playing.

    My point to this is Killzone and I were having a conversation about playing "V" shaped guitars. I own one and play it standing up. He was bitchin about how uncomfortable it is to play sitting down................................I told him to stand up.

    Besides, one day you might be forced to play standing up.

          I'm the lazy kind that sits down when practising. In the end not really good for playing with a band and gigging, something I have to get used to all the time. It sucks.

              Both & always with a strap. I wear my guitar high enough that sitting down doesn't change the guitar's position.

                When I'm at home I sit since I'm usually on the computer at the same time. Whenever I'm playing with other people I stand though.

                    Neither. I find standing and sitting both relatively easy, so I really don't need to practice.

                      Both. Standing is important though. Some things are too easy sitting down.

                        Mostly while sitting, but I tend to move around alot which I suppose is good for real world playing one day?

                        I've started practicing a bit more standing up too since I haven't seen many bar bands play where the guitarist is sitting down....

                            I practice sitting, but I come from a classical background.

                            Tell Cory the V was DESIGNED TO PLAY SITTING DOWN. It's true. You sit with the V straddling your right leg, and play upright in the classical position. This is why Randy Rhoads gravitated to them early on, as a classical guitar teacher. oke:
