Guitar playing & armless folding chairs

Howdy...question for all of you who play guitar/banjo/fiddle/etc....

Anyone found a good folding armless camping chair? I play guitar and fiddle and need an armless chair! Just bought an Interstate...not much room at all, so must fold up into a neat little case.

Thanks!

I wouldn't know a 'Cafe Chair' from a tree stump if it wasn't sitting on the front stoop and Sandy told me it was French.

Hmm, all great suggestions and links. I should clarify, I want one that folds up into a bag. But all the ones I've seen, have the bar across the front, and that digs into your hamstrings when you sit in them. Maybe my ideal chair doesn't exist. I'll keep looking!

I don't have a suggestion for a chair but I suggest you think about where you play your guitar while camping. Many people limit this to areas where theyre not near others - in consideration for the many campers who camp for peacefullness and quiet and to hear the sounds of nature and not someone else's choice in music.

Guitar player here.... The only decent chars I've found aren't very portable. My advice is get a great strap. I like these (prepare for sticker shock)

Also, if you have a large enough chair you can sit a diagonally in it so that your fretting arm is free outside of the armrest and your picking arm is free enough inside the armrest on the other side.

For me a strap is required on a 7 lb banjo whether I'm sitting or standing.

I hate to ask you what you'd think of me playing my fiddle!!

But yes, I totally get what you're saying.
