I still fail to see what's embarrassing about being a good classical player and not owning a classical guitar.

I'm a very proficient drummer, I have played since 1980 but I don't own a drum kit. Well, I do, but only half of one, the other half was stolen. 1989 Tama Granstar in white, btw. Great drums! LOUD!

Re: What leg do you use?

It can be hard playing on the right leg because the RG/JEM is really quite small so you have to bend your arm in to get up high. I still play on my right though, just more comfortable.

Re: What leg do you use?

cool poll! I like to strap a belt through the monkey grip and over my neck, to suspend it above both legs...that way I don't have to wonder if I'm using the right one.

Re: What leg do you use?

It's embarrasing because I regularly have gigs for classical, playing for family events too on the side, and I have to borrow someone elses every time : (

I'm currently saving for this...

I tend to do both... Classical position is just easier in some cases.
