Guitar movement while standing up + hello !

Hey everyone,

Im the new guy. Picked up guitar february this year and soon discovered pebbers stuff - which i am using for months now. Recently signed up for the basic course. I am 50 years old and live in Switzerland. Started out on acoustic for the first 2 months and then bought a Les Paul which is much much easier on my hands, and i play it ever since.

When i practice i am standig up always, never sit. This brings me to the topic. The movement of the neck while playing. Especially when i play the first 2 strings using the classic technique, the palm of the hand doesn't touch the fingerboard and when i move up and down the neck it can move back and forth and also down to an unconfortable position from where i have to make an effort to pull it up again. Playing shirtless solves the problem quite a bit because the guitar sticks to the belly but with a shirt everything moves.

What do you guys do to combat this problem?

Welcome aboard. Can't say I've ever had that problem, but as we say in America "Suck it up buttercup". Myself, I practice sitting and play standing.

Hi TheTenthMan, and grüezi wohl.

I think a video of you playing would help us better answer your question. I have some ideas, but I'm not sure what's happening from your description.

Without really thinking about it til now...
As I play, I have contact with my guitar with both my fretting hand and my strumming arm. That seems to work for me.

YOU are the one one who has ever said that.
"WE" dont say that in America.
