Last concert `I played one peace also standing and that felt great (I also could walk near the audience).
So maybe it could work also on he CG....
Thanks for your explanation Pede!
If it works for you with baroque guitar, then it probably would work for classical too.
It does not work for me if I don;t have guitar with strap connected with buttons on the right place. For example if I use button on the bottom and connect strap with headstock where tuning keys are then guitar as very unstable and it is not convenient to play.
If I fix strap on rosette (there ways to do it) - feels unstable again.
I tried to put strap around guitar - unstable too and also not good for the sound because this way strap limits vibrations of the guitar...
I have a small video there I show that if strap buttons put in the right place - guitar is very stable and it is no difference between standing or sitting in this matter.
It could help to alleviate or eliminate problems of some people with pain in back. neck, shoulders etc.
But i think until it would be socially and culturally accepted not as something strange and not proper as now but as normal and proper position for classical guitarist, as good as sitting for technique, but more ergonomical, majority of people would reject it...
Again, this is all about ergonomics. As far as technique - no difference.
I think the best would be to accept standing/moving position as normal as standard as sitting is and then maybe to play in both positions alternating them from time to time and it should help people with back problems. For some people who do not have back problems, and wish to continue to play sitting - would be nice to accept standing position as normal and standard as a sitting one.
