Best Answer

I am a sitar player, and the way we play sitar is by sitting down, and putting one leg over the other and balancing the sitar on the leg that is slanted. We can't look at the frets on the sitar; we can only hear them, which makes it even harder. The sitar isn't that heavy, but sitting down for long periods of time can hurt while balancing an object on your leg.
