I once bought that support too but NEVER could get accustomed playing with it. I found very, very uncomfortable and gave that thing to anotherJudy Verbeeten wrote: ↑Tue May 01, 2018 1:40 amPhillip, I have seen many classical guitarists use grip strips on their leg to prevent the guitar from slipping off. I was going to purchase the Oasis Grip Strip (from Strings By Mail) for a grand total of $9.95 for the very slippage problem you describe. However, I was having back problems and gave up on my foot stool. I purchased the Sagewood Barnett Guitar Support and absolutely love it (I purchased it from Strings by Mail). It is similar to the Ergoplay support, in terms of what it does,(i.e., an angled support) but I opted for the magnetic Sagewood Barnett Guitar Support to protect the veneer on my guitar. The suction cups of the Ergoplay can wear down the veneer of the guitar.philip caldwell wrote: ↑Sun Apr 22, 2018 11:00 amAs a self taught classical guitarist the one 'big' thing I have never done is use the standard sitting position with a footstool and the guitar on the left thigh. However just lately I thought I ought to try and start using it. I could see advantages to it but I just cannot use that position ! I honestly don't know how any of you DO use it. In that position the guitar is very unstable . it wants to slide down the right leg or fall forward. My right arm has to hold it in place . I have the guitar at the correct angle with the headstock around eye level but the fingerboard feels miles away ( of course I would expect the position to feel a little strange at first).
Anyway, If anyone has any useful advice on this I'd appreciate it. I was wondering about the ergoplay guitar support. Would they be any different? What do you think?
Guitarist for free who, as you are, very happy with it.
Forgot to mention: What I did notice was that my Guitar sounded louder when playing with that thing.
