I have a wooden bar stool, that I shortened the legs on so that my legs are parallel to the floor, and makes it a good height for using the computer while playing. Some of my practice includes some lessons installed on my computer. After playing for awhile, it gets very uncomfortable. Obviously it needs to be something without arms, so some sort of stool has to be used, but I can't seem to find anything comfortable at all, and was curious what others used.

At the computer I use a folding chair from a card table set.
Other than that I sit anywhere I can. If the chair has arms I sit forward a bit toward the edge of the chair.
Hey I am on the edge of my seat :D

I use my computer chair, yesterday I started playing standing up for the first time. I haven't played sitting for two days and counting.

I sit on an old ugly yellow teachers chair.

I was using a bar stool for a while, but my feet would cramp up.

And sometimes the edge of my bed is good too.

I have a folding plastic chair that I like to carry around. It is lightweight and not too big. My father-in-law plays steel guitar and carries a folding metal chair like from a conference room or meeting room. Don't know where he got it. I like the edge of my bed also sometimes.

I use a steno chair (?), no arms and has a gas height adjustor and swivels. I made a footrest of various height positions. I like the ability to change my positions. I found this setup helped with fatique during longer playing sessions. Once I start noodling on the guitar it's hard to stop.
But that's good thing! right?

I have a chair like this in front of my computer - thats what i sit on most of the time. I don't have a footrest though - not a bad idea. I also sit on my side stool or dining chair sometimes.

I spend 50/50 between standing and sitting. Never much thought about what I sit on I'm to busy playing guitar.
