Yeah, and Flying V and RR forms of guitars are made for males!!!


Pretty uncomfortable shapes man, I owned the Randy Rhoads Jackson back in 99 - it was my first guitar, but I somehow couldn't play it that well sitting down, as I was always constrained to keep it in the classical position (I hadn't had a clue what's what and I wanted to keep it side saddle of course laugh.gif )

I can't imagine how difficult it must have been, trying to play that RR side saddle !

Btw, I had never heard that term 'side saddle' before our very own Todd Simpson used it.... respect to Todd for enriching our guitar vocabulary ! biggrin.gif

Indeed Ben, come to think of it, Todd is the one who introduced this term to us! All hail Todd, the guitar lingo expert biggrin.gif

Spiff is such an English sounding expression so it's funny to see and hear an American comrade using it so much ! Todd, you rule ! cool.gif

Well, if they can't perform a standard stealth based operation or a tactical entry after all of this training then our work will have been wasted ! ph34r.gif

Well thanks guys smile.gif Yeah, I always try to avoid playing "Side Saddle" if at all possible. It works for some folks though!

Here is the Wiki Definition. (Although I"m using it to mean putting your guitar on your right leg instead of sitting in proper Classical position ARGGGHH!)

SIDE SADDLE
***Sidesaddle riding is a form of Equestrianism that uses a type of saddle which allows a rider (usually female) to sit aside rather than astride a horse, mule or pony. Sitting aside dates back to antiquity and developed in European countries in the Middle Ages as a way for women in skirts to ride a horse in a modest fashion while also wearing fine clothing. It has retained a specialty equestrian niche even in the modern world.

Yes, it is an unusual looking way of riding. People still do it and compete in the discipline. smile.gif
