gondorbell -> Position (Mar. 29 2018 23:55:53)

Now i a 191 cm long ...of course i look gerardo and ricardo etc...its very difficult to find a right position...seems to be you all nicely get your hand there...but i have very long hands..wrist goes painful situation...also fingers not short...if i try to sit like paco or ricardo example feels guitar goes like drop too low...if i look my teacher(orhan who i follow and will order) he keeps iit high. now most best for me if i raise my right leg to lets say against bed while i a sitting in chair...yep :) do i keep then in future the bed with me all a round?

Thanks this great foro

gracias Pietro

Footstool is always an option. Although I guess there are some advantages to hauling your bed around. The footstool isn't nearly as comfortable for short naps. You can always play around with the angle of the guitar and see if it changes anything. For instance, I have to have the guitar slightly bent forward (so soundhole slightly towards the ground) to be comfortable. Then of course it's not always about the position of the guitar but about your own position, how you hold yourself.

Consider a guitar support...

Long guys, have a lot of benefit with an armrest for the upper arm. Like this kind.

I have similar issues with sitting. I am 6' 5" (about 195 cm) tall, with long arms and long torso. With my feet flat on the floor and no support the guitar feels like a belt buckle. I have found that using a shorter stool has been helpful. I also mess around with a pillow support sometimes, but generally just sitting on a lower stool and crossing my right leg works good enough. If I try to bring the guitar too far up then my right arm wraps around behind the bridge and the wrist angle in my right hand becomes too acute.

My biggest issue is being able to hold the neck at a comfortable angle. I wish I could get is a little higher, like Ramzi in his profile pic. I have to use the pillow for that, otherwise I get too much tension in the left hand.

I grew up playing steel string guitars and almost always use a strap for this reason.

A low chair and shallow foot stool sorted me out. Traditional bulrush and olive wood chairs in Andalucía are pretty low.

Everything down to musicality will improve if you do not sit.

Ruphus -> RE: Position (Apr. 3 2018 12:00:48)

Regarding low sitting, best I ever encountered was one this kind (of leather though, which grants more of friction): https://tse1.mm.bing.net/th?id=OIP.-Y37oIi59HCPEzXrtsW78gHaGy&w=178&h=163&c=7&o=5&dpr=1.363636&pid=1.7

Never tried it for guitar playing, but it was incredibly comfortable for relaxed TV watching.

Practice on a ukelele... you will soon be thankful for the guitars “large” dimensions and realize it’s about the fingers

Thanks long dude for your answer...its for me like...many answers take guitar top sofa or like you say some pillow etc...i like to be without nothing and just find the position---adjusting stuff around guitar and rests and pillows and like i said earlier taking whole bed with me ...no...

so someway my question was stupid,but cause new to flamenco its not.

Now.. i have continue practicing 3 days every week thanks to Orhan.
Still long hand makes problems..i dont get guitar ass in like armpit or under biceps. But ok otherwise. :) Puo essere hands find their way..:)
