Blackcatter Tips for teaching a lefty guitar? (50) RE: Tips for teaching a lefty guitar? 09 May 05

Tunesmith - please realize that some people - both rightys & leftys have more dexterity in one hand than the other. Depending on who you play you might want to use that more dexterous hand to work the more complicated parts.

And I know some one who's left hand was lost in an accident and he learned to play left-handed guitar because he can use a hook thing on his left hand to strum and pick.

As for the lack of other lefty instruments - how do you know there aren't lefty violins, etc. out there? Just because nearly everyone who is left handed seems to bow to the wishes of the majority of humans doesn't mean that ALL lefties do.

I place washtub bass and I pick the string with my left hand and control the tone (tension) with my right. I believe that is opposite what most "legitimate" bass players do.
