I know this topic has posted before, but I'm thinking that my problem not being able to form my left hand properly, thereby causing the awful "clunk" noise, is a result of several things of course, but most probably my posture while playing. You see, when I practice I have a tendency to 'slump' over the guitar after a period of only a few minutes. So, being 6'2" and sitting in a firm seated dinning room style chair may be causing the slumping which ultimately results in the constant improper left hand position?? I seem to remember that several persons wrote about guitar benches, chairs, stools, etc, and I'm asking if I can get a consensus of the board on what is being used as a norm for a chair? I also seem to lose guitar position while I slump and have to go to Nadar's post regarding holding the guitar as a reminder.
Is there anyone out there that could suggest a strong, sturdy chair, bench, stool, that might be available and specifically for use with the guitar? Then maybe, I can correct ONE of my bad habits!!
