Firstly - Hi to all the mods, and please hear my plea ;-)

I was a right handed guitarist for over ten years who had to give up years ago due to a severe accident involving my left hand.
I've now decided to have a go at learning to play left handed, and am finding this site to be a fantastic source of info.

Is there any chance that I (and all the other 'genuine' lefties on this site) could have a forum dedicated towards those of us who play the guitar 'the wrong way round'?

There's some great info here, but all chord shapes and scale/arpeggio patterns require amending before use.

I've already started translating some of the excellent articles on this site so that they are usable by lefties, and would gladly post what I've got so far - along with a link to the original post, and a credit to the original author of course :-)

Could this possibly be done? (I'm sure a certain 'Jimi' and 'Kurt' from Seattle would have approved, as would Mr Iommi among others)
The best place would probably be under the 'Instruments' category.

Any other lefties could then start to post what info they have converted, and it could become a great resource for all of us.

Wish me luck ;-)

Cheers :-)

I didn't know that was there!

I suppose that kind of reiterates the need for a forum on the main forum page though.
A link to that group could be put as a sticky on the lefties forum ;-)

Thanks again though.

you would have been better off posting this here

but i highly doubt it will happen. i think another forum on here would mean it would cost more money for Zappp to owe to vBulletin, and would make UG Forums a little slower.

and they already tried to get an "other instrument" and a "drum" forum section added, and both failed i think.

i would guess the added cost means little to zappp.

more likely the issue is subdividing too much, causing less use of the existing forums and general confusion on what goes where and how to find things.

one thing is for certain: any new forum is highly unlikely.
but a lefty guitar forum, although it probably won't happen, is MUCH more likely than a drum forum or other instruments forum.
