first of all i am planning to see a guitar teacher (right now i´m not seeing one) and this is not at all a medical questions, for these i will go to my doctor, so please feel free to share your opinions about this.
I´m exercising on a daily basis, the approximate duration is from around one to three hours.
I´ve always had a rather stiff neck (for which i have been seeing my doc) but in the last weeks my neck is getting ever more stiff(er?) and my back is starting to hurt.
I tried to check my sitting position, let the shoulders loose without too much tension, tried to hold the back straight (but not too straight, i´m not a robot
I´m using a footrest in the "typical" (i would say) classical guitaris postion with the guitar on the left thigh.
I tried adjusting the footrest to another position, but that was not good for the hand positioning, so i returned it to the original setting.
So now i am thinking about using maybe a different chair.
Do you have experience in this? What would you say the height of such a chair - to be spending hours in playing guitar - should be?
I am 1.76 meters tall (that would be 5.77 feet).
i think i will have to look after my back (besides the medical influences, which would mean sports and such for me) and maybe you have tipps for such "furniture" which woul be suitable.
Thanks a lot!
