    I personally like to have risers or something to throw my foot up on. We dont use floor monitors so thats not an option.

    Where do you put your foot?

    I wear my guitar at a proper height, while standing, so I don't have to prop my foot up. Sitting down, if nothing is available, my little thing I do, without thinking about it, is to turn my left foot on it's side and my right foot on top of it, ha ha ha.

    Thats a fantastic idea. Im going to make a couple of those very soon. Ill see if i can work out a way to make them fold up and support the weight of a person and then post about it.

    haha. I just want to look cool ;) i do something similar when standing i have a habit of standing with my leg propped against my other leg just to give me some stability when i need to move around the neck.

    yes, do this and make them look like floor monitors...

    ...then they will match the fake marshall stacks ppl use on stage :lol:

    I put my guitar pretty high up on my body so I dont really need to rest my foot on anything, but sometimes I hire a prostitute to form a human table for the entire show. There's no sex involved but prostitutes generally make good footstools.

    haha. Funny but thats also an awesome idea. I want something to jump onto too though so a monitor doesnt work. Maybe make them look like 2x12 cabs :p People will think they're part of the system.

    John petrucci does something cool where he put those drum throne/sybian masturbator thumpers in his footrests so that he can feel his guitar while hes playing. At some point i might do something similar with my custom risers

    We always had monitors most of the time live so I put my left foot up on the monitor. One venue I used to play at a lot had large subwoofers in front of the stage that were taller than the front of the stage so we all jumped up on and off of the subs. Made for a great stage show. I almost fell off of one into the crowd on night.

    At home I sit in an office chair. I need to get some kind of foot rest though so I can play my RR7 more
