I can easily do it while sitting down but i can't for god sake fret using a pinky while standing.Is there any technique/position to it or should i just keep practicing?
How low are your straps? If it is too low, it can inhibit your playing. Try increasing the height and see how it goes.
raise the guitar higher, or angle the neck upward more. those are most likely your problems.
I agree with the other guys, mess with the position of the guitar in relation to your torso. It changes with everybody. Another big factor is just getting used to it. The muscles have to get used to it, your pinky doesn't naturally like being used like that
Thanks for the advice.Its feels much more 'appropriate' now.I guess i should give it some more time to really feel comfortable.
