With my classical guitar arm positioning has never been an issue. I just rest my arm naturally on the body at the crook of the elbow:
My wrist stays pretty flat:
I feel like I could sit like that for hours. My electric guitar has been a struggle. The first position I was told to try was to rest my arm a bit past the elbow:
This feels pretty awkward and my wrist doesn't look so good
I have been playing around with resting at the crook of my elbow:
It seems better on the wrist:
But I get pins and needles in my right arm after only about 10 minutes in this position. It's almost as if the thinner body of my electric guitar is digging into my arm and maybe cutting off circulation? What's the right way to position my right arm for good ergonomics and comfort?
