Great playing, thank you! Your guitar looks so high, what support do you use?

Thank you, Tbon.
I am not using a stand at all.
I am holding the guitar on my right lap, and angleing it as needed.
It works pretty well - I've been holding the instrument like this for about a year.
I am also considering the use of a strap.
In the classical period, there were some players who used a strap.

My college professor has returned to using a strap.
His name is Mark Maxwell, from DePaul University.
He's happy with the new position.

Thanks for your comments.

Nice job Florentin! :bravo:

I was wondering what was holding the guitar up too! :lol:

When I worked on this Etude back in college, I was using the Ricordi edition with Llobet's fingerings -

p i m a m a m a.

I thought it was a great workout for m-a.

Best wishes to you and your loved ones for the New Year!

Hi Alan,

I forget which edition I first played this from.
I'm pretty sure it was not the Llobet edition.
It was the green-cover book :) Pretty commonly used in music schools 15 years or so ago :)

I tried different right-finger combinations and somehow got stuck with p i m a i m i m

I play this occasionally for a warm up, due to the extensive use of right-hand arpeggios, and I often play without the repeating (last) four notes anyways, turning this into a strict arpeggio exercise.

Thanks for your comments.

Thanks for answering my comment. Amazing, the guitar seem quite stable, do you hold it with your right arm? I will give it a try. I built by hand a small height Dynarette with a larger base to fit better my leg, and it's quite stable. I use it with a footstool set on a very low position, or without footstool when sitting on a low chair. So far I am satisfied with this solution, but of course, it's just for home playing.

Thanks Cary :)

Tbon... I've seen quite a few guitarists now, holding the instrument the same way.
Oscar Ghiglia does something similar, but he uses a metal stand to elevate and hold the guitar.
He's done it this way for many, many years.

I've seen Scott Tennant play in this position at least one time, but not on the stage.
He was playing a demo on a new luthier-made guitar.

Everybody's body is different, so you need to find out what works for you.
