I’ve written a note about the attitude of the person who plays the violin before, but the other day I heard a guitarist who happened to say, “It’s hard work to play the guitar.” I thought it would be true. <!-More->
In any work, it is easy to use the front shoulder because the arm is used in front, but in particular, musical instruments often do not use the left and right evenly, so the burden on the body will inevitably increase.
When pulling the guitar with the right hand, the shoulder of the left arm that holds the strings with the neck of the guitar is easy to pull back, and the right hand that repels the strings is easy to come out forward.
Also The electric guitar weighs about 3.5 kg , but the center of the body is on the right leg side, which makes it easier to put the weight on the right leg to pull the strings on the right.
This is because the left leg becomes longer due to the right center of gravity, so diseases of the digestive, urinary, and genital systems are more likely to occur, and problems are more likely to occur in the right half of the body.
Speaking of which, the person who plays the guitar has the impression that his body is thin, but it seems that the fact that his left leg is long has a lot to do with it.
However, when sitting and playing as shown in the picture, the right leg may be crossed up to put the body of the guitar on the knee, but in this case the center of gravity seems to be on the left, but in this case On the contrary, the right leg becomes longer.
Therefore, it is important for those who play the guitar to grasp their own physical habits and balance their bodies properly in their daily lives.
If the center of gravity is always on the right side, make a habit of putting your weight on the left side. (The opposite is true for the left center of gravity)
Watch TV or PC to the left
Start walking from the right leg
When standing, pull the left leg back and put your weight on the left leg
In the first place, if a load exceeding the weight is applied to the legs, the hip joints will inevitably open, causing O-legs and stoops, so when sitting on a chair, keep your knees tight and do not open your legs. Creating habits is also important.
From the back of the cat to the front shoulder, problems related to the arms and hands such as tendonitis, trigger finger, and elbow pain may occur, so it is recommended to use a sash to always pull the shoulder back.
Sir, please play hard while being careful about your health! !!
I’m writing this sentence now while listening to Tom Morello’s guitar from Rage Against the Machine ♡
