When one stands i believe one looses the power to play classical effectivly i.e. right hand dominance and fluidity of its motions, especially tremelo. Scratch that, actually, the especially would be in reference to the endurance. Standing up may be comfortable for a piece or two, but i would find it hard to pursue an entire two set, one intermission, classical guitar concert, standing up.
Thanks for your interest ,Kurt. I play guitar more than 40 years. I published 50 albums of guitar music recorded mostly standing... I played thousands of concerts during my life and last 20 years mostly standing... and it is opposite... it is very uncomfortable to sit...
especially when you got older and HAVE BACK PROBLEMS... But if people like to sit that's fine for me ...I'm just advising - please ignore it and continue to sit.
But please don't bring false arguments in this topic - I'm 52 and sometimes I play 10 hours a day standing (there are such days ...) and if I need to sit 10 hours it will be a torture, but to stand ? I just feel little bit tired... by the way when I stand I don't stand like statue, I always move little bit and that way my body feel free and relaxed. Tremolo? Right hand? No difference standing or sitting. It is probably even better for right hand because right shoulder should be more relaxed standing than sitting.
Couple of samples:
I'd better speak by music...Please listen my guitar at Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, etc.
