Thread Name: Left Handers and Strings?
Subject: RE: Left Handers and Strings?
Geoff, Being Lefthanded and playing Guitar and upright bass bassackwards, I would encourage your lefty to learn to play standard right handed instruments. There is almost as much dexterity required of both hands on stringed instruments and if you start them young, and tell them this is the way to do it, they will thank you for it later on , when they want to borrow an instrument, etc. I never have the opportunity to get a feel for an instrument without buying one as there are so few lefty instruments out there to try, etc. When I look back and wonder why I started this lefty idea when as a trumpet player, I played the valves with my right hand! Teach em right handed.
