Despite being a musician for years, I've never seen anyone play their instrument while lying on their back, until today. Apparently, violinists sometimes practice on their backs in order to alleviate the strain on their necks and shoulders. This is the only photo I could find on the web. It's pretty neat.
What, you mean you've never flopped on your back to play your guitar? To tell you the truth, I can't say that I've ever heard of it either, but maybe that's because I don't play an instrument that's amenable to that.
Playing instruments while lying on your back is something that hasn't crossed my mind. I'm not that surprised, though, since violins aren't that heavy. It could also be beneficial when you need to relax.
