Learn all about strumming mechanics! Your arm motion and body position help you unlock your rhythm. The full lesson is here!
In regards to posture while holding the guitar & strumming, should I keep my right foot on the floor or or put it up on a foot rest? I tend to do the latter, but find after a long practice session my right leg gets a bit stiff & sore. Of course, I try to break up my practice sessions and even practice a little while standing up, but I’m just asking about the ideal placement of the right foot & leg as 3 weeks in, I haven’t quite figured out which is best.
It is not a matter of ‘should’ as using a foot rest or not is entirely personal choice for comfort and convenience while playing. Do what feels good and right but if discomfort sets in, change it.
Switching between sitting and standing will be of benefit.
Thanks @Richard_close2u . Gives me a reason to practice both sitting and standing
