1 LeftyJ 2 years ago After decades of playing guitar, I've suddenly realized the whole idea of how to play seated with an electric guitar is a mystifying subject. When I discuss it with friends they realize they've encountered the same thing and chuckle. (I'm left-handed but i'll describe in righty terms). Ok, if you sit the with the guitar on your right thigh, many guitars are extremely boaty unless your LH thumb is hanging' over neck whole time. To preface I'm not in either camp of fretting hand thumb behind the neck, peaking out or wrapped around. I do all three depending on the style from blues and rock to jazz and classical. The fretting hand thumb has all kinds of roles. But yeah, in classical pieces I keep it out of view. When you thumb is not wrapped around though, the guitar needs to be supported well by your arms and legs----unless it is hanging from a really high strap. With many of my electrics I like to sit with a foot stool and classical position. It looks a tad square but I don't care. My Gretsch 6120 is the best feeling for any combo of sitting. It is equally comfortable on the right thigh, left thigh, with a tight strap, or standing up.Anyway just wondering if folks have pondered this!
