Hi
Recently I have been trying to pratice on the floor, sitting. The position I have been playing in is one that I saw sitar players use. I saw a picture of Ted using this position as well. Kind of like one leg on top of the other making the instrment more comfortable to hold, however it also makes my legs fall asleep every ten minure. Has anyone experienced this? Is it just because I've started using this position?

Thanks

-Greg

Hi Greg,
 I used to sit on the floor during lessons with Ted and my legs always fell asleep. After the lesson was over I was always fearful of stumbling over the row of guitar that usually laid around the room. I don't know how Ted could sit crossed legged for what I'm sure was hours a day and never seem to have any problem with it. For me, it was easier to see what Ted was playing if I sat directly across from him; so that's what I did. When practicing at home I take the more traditional approach of desk,chair and music stand.

I hate when my leg falls asleep, because then it will be up all night.
