Thread Name: Tips for teaching a lefty guitar?
Subject: RE: Tips for teaching a lefty guitar?
Reading "georgeward", I'll say again! The guitar is a 2-handed instrument! Infact, I would go as far as to say that - probably - learning the guitar "left" or "right" handed is equally valid - for anyone. But your feeling of "initiating" things with your dominant hand doesn't make sense with a 2-handed instrument e.g. when you strum a chord - playing "orthodox" style - it's your LEFT hand which initiates proceedings!
