I was going to say, “When I gig, I’m the drummer so I sit 100%of the time.” but thats not helpful. I do play out on acoustic when I’m doing my singer/songwriter thing and I stand mostly depending on my mood and venue. When I sit, I prefer a hard, straight up ladder back chair and always bring one with me.Hey people,
I've been standing while I play 100% of the time for 35 years; gotten to the point where sitting and playing feels very alien. Now I've got foot problems (neuroma in each foot) and am thinking I need to start sitting again. Also, I want to make some YouTube videos and I think the sitting videos come across better than the ones where people stand.
So, I'm looking around and trying to figure out what kind of stool to get. Tons of options. I know I want something with back support, but other than that I'm not sure. My bass player friend just spent about a hundred bucks on a stool; looks very cool, comfy, but no back support.
I know most people sit for at least a large part of their playing and I'm kinda weird for sticking to standing, so show us what you be sitting on, and whether it's what you think is best for playing. Doesn't have to be a stool, could just be a couch.
