    Hi Kahai et al,

    Following up on the latest podcast strap qeuestion… could you talk about holding a soprano without a strap, particularly for fingerstyle?

    I’ve found the soprano to be (a bit paradoxically) the hardest to hold comfortably…

    – when sitting and holding on lap, it’s hard to keep decent posture since you’re leaning over such a small uke
    – when standing, strumming is fine, but for fingerstyle it’s hard to find enough surface area to grip with your forearm (unless maybe you’re picking mostly with the thumb, Ohta-san style)

    Looking forward to hearing your tips!
