Holding the guitar

Post by Cadi » May 8th, 2018, 3:21 pm

Hi all I have been learning a few weeks now, but I am struggling to hold my guitar it is a dreadnought shape and I can't seem to get my strumming arm to rest on the top it is more comfortable more forward. If I get my arm on the bottom bout I feel like I am straining my shoulder on my fretting side as I seem to be pushing the fret board away from me then I'm not fretting the chords well. I am wondering would I be better with a different type of guitar? Also I still seem to be catching the strings with my other fingers many thanks in advance
