Why Use a Guitar Footrest?
The purpose of the guitar footrest is to promote a better posture in the following areas:
- Lower back
- Upper back and shoulders
If you’re playing the guitar in classical position, you have the guitar between legs with the neck pointed diagonally away from you at roughly a 45 degree angle from your body.
If your feet are level, then the bottom of the guitar is pushing against the inside of your right thigh, but it is difficult to hold up in this position, so you end up holding some of the weight of the guitar with your left hand–which makes playing really difficult.
When you use a footrest, your guitar can comfortably sit against your leg, held in place with your right arm, with the bottom of the guitar pressing into your right thigh.
WHY A FOOTSTOOL FOR CLASSICAL GUITAR PLAYING MATTERS
If you’ve seen a classical guitarist perform, there’s a good chance you’ve seen him or her use a footstool or footrest, to prop up the leg and support it. This is an essential part of their toolkit, and it serves a few different functions. Without one, technique and sound will be compromised, and this article will explain why that is the case.
