I never used a guitar foot rest, or some call it a guitar foot stool, up until very recently. I got myself a classical guitar after my old one got lost when I relocated from Germany to the USA. It kind of never really occurred to me why I would need such a device but maybe I’m just getting older – anyway, the truth of the matter is, when I started practicing with my new classical guitar my back started to hurt which of course did impact my concentration and forced me to keep my sessions much shorter than intended. So I decided just to get myself one of those guitar foot rests to give it a try. Well, what can I tell you, I am very happy that I did.
