I'm new to classical guitar, just got a guitar (Alhambra 4P) and got a Gitano as don't like the idea of a foot stool.
I'm trying to figure out the optimal setup with it.
I quite like the feel of it sitting on my right leg (I'm right handed) as the guitar feels more 'underneath' me and I can see what I'm doing better with the left hand as I'm learning. However, the Gitano on the left leg seems to look like the more textbook position of a classical guitar - although it feels like the fretboard is out too far left. This is probably because of my steel string background and just will take some getting used to.
Was wondering what leg others use and what is more common. I've got some lessons lined up in a few weeks and was wondering if I start practicing with it on my right leg the teacher might tell me this is 'non-standard' or something and I'll have to readjust.
