A curious thing about learning to play an instrument like the guitar is that at first you really don’t want to know about sitting position, how you hold the instrument, how you present your hands. And yet in the longer run this will make all the difference: your position can make things much more difficult than necessary. This is, however, so difficult to get to see in the beginning.. as you just want to play the pieces or songs, it seems an unnecessary encumbrance. And yet it is fundamental…

One has to strike that balance, like so many others, when teaching the guitar.
