Guitar Chairs – Things You Should Know About

By Monica | Guitarist Gear , News

Playing the guitar is quite cool and fun. The moment you can realize all those tones and notes on your fingers, everything would be smooth and satisfying.

But despite the elation that a guitar can bring, this doesn't mean that you can get comfortable with it all the time. I am not saying that the instrument will make you feel bored eventually. No, that's not the case. Instead, what I am trying to imply is that handling a guitar can put strains in your body. If you are not properly positioned, the gear can punish your back or shoulders.

Nobody wants to stand for hours while playing their rig. Even professionals have to rest their feet first before they give up to the weight and burliness of the instrument.
