I recently bought a fretless 3-string cigar box guitar.
The problem I'm having is holding it securely on my lap. It wants to slide off. The neck wants to fall away from me.
If I play finger-style, I can clasp the body against my torso using my palm. However that doesn't work if I want to pick freely with a plectrum while using a slide.
I've watched some people playing CBGs on YouTube, and all I can see is that none of them seem to be bothered by this problem.
Has anyone else met this problem, and how did you solve it?
If I fit a strap, what considerations are there about where to attach it? Top or bottom of the neck?
