Et tu Justin? People, please dont complain about the difficulties of being Left Handed. The righties just get all patronizing... "well, you should really play right handed". Rubbish. Reading chord charts and tabs upside down is really quite easy once you get the hang of it. Left Handers have an advantage in that we are generally more intelligent than right handers (and also better looking).You dont even need a Left Handed guitar, just restring it or play that sucker upside down. Left Handers, play the way you were meant to play, embrace your uniqueness, dont let them grind us down. Stand tall, my Left Handed Brothers and Sisters. We are the Chosen.
hehe very funny plea.
I started out on an upside down (not restrung!) righty guitar. (crazy right!)
A very important part is finding out how dominant your left hand is...
I do a lot righty and a lot of lefty style but to start guitaring, my left hand was very dominant (even before, when playing air guitar
I have a lefty Strat and it's so handy to be able to reach the higher frets becasue the cutout is useful (flipping over righty : no cutout)
Of course, there are a lot more righty guitars to pick from and if your left hand isn't too dominant you can learn to play guitar righthanded. If you find out, after 6 months, that perhaps playing lefty was a better idea ...sjah.. "told you so?" Seriously; as one of the "Lefty Ambassadors' of this forum, I take the "lefthandedness" and it's disadvantage in the guitarmarket serious.
Justin already contacted me before and I transfered a bunch of scale shapes to lefty scale shapes already. Chord boxes are on the programme too. I'm gonna bother him sooner or later again to check how Justinguitar.com can facilitate lefties but I understand that for now; it hasn't got J's highest priority. I'm going to contact him again today about this perhaps a "lefty resource material page" can be a manageable idea.
