Leg Cushion 

Hello to everyone and anyone reading this. My first post here, so thanks for your time.

Long story, short:

I'm looking for a leg cushion similar to the Dynarette (https://www.stringsbymail.com/dynarette-guitar-support-cushion-s-4-inches-1807.html), but that will fit comfortably on the outer leg. It would have to be less of an incline than the one I already have, now.

Longer story, not short:

As a classical guitarist, I played for a long time using a footstool, but my hip became a bit of a problem...and the Dynarette was a very effective alternative. A wrist injury made the solo playing I was used to on a nylon string guitar a thing of the past. Rather than stew about it, I put all of my focus on the electric guitar. Thinner neck.

I recently bought an excellent semi-hollow body. Plays everything well...including jazz, which is a primary focus, now. I love this guitar, but the body is too wide to sit comfortably between my legs, as I do with all of my guitars. And I'm having trouble with my left rotator cuff, which is making reaches around the nut a little painful.

(Are you getting the picture that my body's starting to "feel the years"...?)

So I'm looking for a lower profile leg cushion to sit on the outer leg. As is, I'm using my old footstool or crossing my leg. This raises the guitar to a height I'm comfortable with.

I see a lot of great flamenco players using their outer leg. I can't hold that crossed leg for very long, though. So I'm hoping someone can steer me towards a cushion alternative.

Thanks, again, for your time.

Bob

Have you not tried the traditional flamenco posture? Now I am old and fat I also have adapted it’s benefits. Feet flat, straight back, easy access to upper positions etc.
