OK, Ive been really working on this whole ‘positions’ thing and I think I’ve finally got it!
First position: Standing… used mostly for performing, especially if the number being played is pretty upbeat, therefore requiring more body and foot movement. This is particularly helpful when playing by memory.
Second Position: Sitting…used mostly for practice, particularly when using tabs to become familiar with a song.
Third Position: Reclining…sitting on the porch with your foot propped on the rail, playing something sweet, lowdown and bluesy.
I’m still working on the other position but will keep you posted with my progress.
