so today I decided to begin practicing my acoustic in exclusively classical position (thumb towards middle of the back of the neck, guitar on my left leg, and propping my left foot up - on books in this case) I figured this would help and it seems alright so far, it will take some getting used to. My only problem is that my left leg is falling asleep quickly and its very uncomfortable and a little distracting. anyone know how to remedy this? Am I doing something incorrectly? thanks

A lot of pros do that: if they play a wrong note, they'll hit it again to make it look as if it's intentional. It's called "jazz", aparently.

just sit as you are comfortable to, you will find a good position!

good luck!

Your probably cutting of your blood ciruclation by jamming the guitar into your leg


Unless it's maybe a solid lump of mahog (les paul) i don't think that would be an issue?

I do that too!
except its with an electric guitar...
and its my right leg....
Anyway, is the guitar propped against your left leg at an angle or flat with the side of the guitar?

playing by yourself is like masturbating, sure it feels great, but it's nothing compared to the real deal.

it's a lightweight acoustic and the neck is at a slight upward angle when I hold it comfortably enough to play
