ok then guys here is another poll for you
how do you practice
sitting down or standing up
Sitting down, its more practical since I often read sheet music off my computer and when I practice for longer times then it just is more comfortable.
i posted the exact same thread no more than 2 weeks ago...
I usually practice sitting down, but I find that it is way harder to play when I stand up so I'm going to practice standing up more.
I find it eaiser to play while standing, but all of my lessons are sitting so . . .
When I am practicing stuff for my lesson I usually sit. When I am playing to a CD, or the cable music stations I usually stand.
WOW.. im really suprised that im the only one who practices standing up. I think I actually play better standing up.
I practice standing up so that I can get a feel for what it's like when I will be performing I have to be able to stand for long periods of time... I often sit when looking or playing tablature on the computer... But I almost always try to practice standing it just seems like a practical choice for me.. I NEED to get used to it... My Bass is damn heavy! Lol
When working on the finer details about my playing, I sit down - mainly because it usually takes a while and I would get tired in my legs otherwise.
When playing along with CD:s or practising songs I stand up, thus giving it a more realistic feel.
Sitting down mostly, easier to read music from stand and more comfortable
When going over lessons sit, when practicing song's I've learned standing!
usually sitting down..unless it's BAND practice; then i usually stand. or sit on a milk crate; i like sitting close to the ground.
yeh i usually sit down, say if im practicing in my room, but at band practice i stand up to say prepare to play on stage.
i do both...im better standing up but most of the time ill practice for 2-5 hrs so i sit down
I'm pretty much always standing... unless I get tired.
This is about the same for me.
If I'm reading a new piece of music or notating a song from a CD, I'll sit down. When I'm practicing scales, playing a piece of music or song from a CD that I know, I'll stand up. Lately I've been practicing between one and four hours a day (not always in one sitting) and I find that I sit about 50% and stand about 50%.
Both. But not at the same time.
Well I voted standing up as I rarely sit down. I have long gorilla arms so it is hard for me to play my bass comfortably while sitting down.
I am 5'10" but my wingspan is 6'3". (My right arm is 1" longer) It makes it akward to try and play while sitting as well as buying suits off the rack.. I have to get everything altered.
i generally play standig up and movin around when i'm trying to learn somethin by ear...........
Most of the time I practice sitting down...but I make a point to stand up and practice at least once or twice a week.
