sometimes i tend to twist my body to left a bit.lagartija wrote: After reading the overview, you can go here and it will show pictures of guitar holding positions from various angles. Notice the picture from the back and the position of the shoulder blades. Also take note of the position of the pelvis in the side view.
Interesting that it was your right shoulder that was the problem. I would have thought it was the left shoulder or fretting side that would be unbalanced by playing guitar. Speaking for myself, the right arm doesn't do as much work as the left when it comes to effort expended further from the core. My right arm is closer to my body and thus it is easier to use the muscles of the torso. I still use the muscles of the torso to support my left arm as well, but since it is further from my body (in first position especially) the arm and shoulder muscles are also engaged... a bit more so than on the right.I know this thread is quite old but I thought I would share my own experience.Last year I started getting pain in my right shoulder.
I know that you have had serious back problems, Andrei (degenerative disk disease) and have benefited greatly from playing in a standing position.AndreiKrylov wrote:Yes if people do not care about their back, shoulders etc. but just want to follow tradition - yes it is fine!
If they don't want to play longer and to practice longer and with more results and less stress then it is fine !
What do you do to let the back of the guitar vibrate while standing up with it?AndreiKrylov wrote: Why? If it is absolutely clear that sitting (ergonomically) is not good for you... and it is not necessary to sit with guitar, because classical guitar is not heavy and can be easily played with the strap...
