The Dynarette (by another brand name) arrived and I've used it off and on for two days. It is far more stable than I imagined. It doesn't slip. I got a large, but I still need my footstool set in the lowest position, and wearing socks, to get a position I like. Before, I had the footstool angled higher and would wear one big soled boot and just my sock on the other foot (o.k. no jokes.)
Here's the thing: with Dynarette, I have the head slightly higher than what I'm used to. Also, the angle of the neck is slightly different: it's more perpendicular to the floor, although still slightly angled back so that I can see the fretboard (although I mostly look at the music when I play). My left hand position is also slightly altered. My face is closer to the lower frets of the guitar than before. Oh and my right arm is positioned differently on the bout. I'm wondering now if my usual position is 'wrong', or the new position, or neither.
I go back and forth between which I prefer. I think the perpendicular position may be better. I'm surprised that I still find the notes, because it feels just a little awkward. finally, it's possible that the dynarette makes supporting the neck easier and so frees up my left hand--but I'm not sure. So all of this should be expected I guess.
does anyone find their neck or hand position altered when they use a Dynarette? I suppose it would have to happen to some extent.
