My hamster used to bite me when I picked it up, then it got too old and fat to bite and died in a pool of it's own vomit.

    i've tried both, the advantage of classical is that u are playing like your standing up, like the neck is in that angle.

    But I'm more comfort with the casual.

    Both, depends on what I'm playing.

    I usually play in a position closer to classical (with my guitar tipped upwards a little) because I find it easier to move around on the neck. But it hurts my fretting arm after a while, so I occasionally use the casual position as well.

    Usually casual, classical if I'm trying to play a more difficult piece, or if I just feel like it.
    Most of the time, though, I'm not even sitting properly, just laying in a corner, or slouching in a chair or something, so, I play with my guitar in some awkward positions.

    I really really can't vote, I use both equally. It depends what I'm playing.

    Casual. I used to do classical, but now the input jack in my guitar is in a position where it's uncomfortable to use classical position. It took me a bit to get used to casual, but I find that I hunch less when I use that position and it's more comfortable now in any case.
    #26
    Casual generally but strangely if I'm watching something I quickly change to classical.

    Casual fo' shizzle ma dizzle. I spend most of my fretboard time below the 12th fret anyway, so I'll take comfort over proper technique. I can play just fine with my arm over my body.

    I allways play standing up... but if I sit down i'm playing classical,


    it just makes more sense to me, most guitar players will end up playing while standing up if they hit the stage one day right?

    and one more reason: playing it "casual" makes you like like a gay scout leader

    Casual, but I cross my legs so my guitar is on top of the crossed leg.
