Hello! Recently got back into playing guitar (I'm still a beginner) and so bought a parlour guitar (Gretch G9500 Jim Dandy) the other day.

But after some playing I've realised playing scales close to the guitar body mean i have to bend my arm in to my body and really have to strain to bend my wrist and keep it at pretty much 90 degrees!

I can stop this problem by sitting the guitar on my lap and holding it more upright but this doesn't exactly look cool...

Has anyone got any advice for how I could still be able to keep the guitar? Or is it a lost cause?

Many thanks
