Is this book compatible with LEFT HANDED players?
« on: September 19, 2018, 05:58:54 pm »
Hello there,

I was thinking about ordering the beginners coursebook and starting to watch the beginners lessons. I am a LEFT HANDED player. Is the book and videos compatible for left handed players?

The chord diagrams, is there a way to see them in left hand view?

No there isn't any in the book, you'd have to download LH chord diagrams from the net. Easy to find.

as a LH I actually found LH diagrams confusing, and just went with right. Most of the time I was learning chords from videos anyway, and this was easier, being mirror image.

Sounds good, just learning my first D, A, and E chords! Will probably purchase the coursebook soon.

Hey taymana337, i'm a lefty too and i'm at the intermediate stages now. At first it's a bit difficult, having to translate the chordboxes to a left handed version, but the video's are really helpfull, as they give you a mirror image.

If something is especially difficult, i download some lefthanded chordboxes, diagrams etc, and start taking notes. (my chord book, for example. Just left handed chord boxes)

Have a look here: https://leftyfretz.com/

Good luck and have fun!
I'll get it in the end. Just don't give up, that's the key....
