fall a little short on this. i am left handed but play right. back when i started in the late 70s lefty guitars were really hard to find.

taste in music well since other than the couple of cover attempts you have how would i know.

i don't have any lefty friends.

Hendrix is my fav lefty player and actually one of my all time favs period.

hmm, thats a hard one, i cant think off the top of my head, but kurt was good, tonys great, zacky v is pretty good if you ask me for his rhythms. Any body else have trouble finding decent lefty guitars?????? I hate going to music store, seeing the same shitty left handed guitars nobody wants cause they suck, and its like for everyone else a damn candy store, they can play anything they want from a 100dollar squire to 4000 prs. Pisses me off, I think they should make more leftys, of the same quality they do alot of other guitars.

imagine going to stores and finding no left handed guitars. i started by flipping guitars like jimi but after a couple of years said screw this and started from scratch playing righty. i also found it was tough for righties to show you things because to them it was backwards.

Well, that's very...what's the word...twattish? Right-handed people can't adequately discuss southpaw topics?

2 You must have a great taste in music (like me)


Stupid rule is stupid. All this is going to lead to is egos and opinions colliding on what is "great" music.

Probably either Hendrix, Albert King or Joe Perry.

Edit: And Dick Dale. I knew I was forgetting someone, but I'm ashamed that it was the King of Surf Guitar.

I'm a lefty

Favorite left guitarist I know is prolly Zacky Vengeance.

I'm a lefty. And Jackson doesn't seem to like me much as a result. D= Either way, my favorite lefty guitarist is probably Kurt Cobain(I realize he's far from the most talented guitarist out there, but I've honestly yet to hear a Nirvana song I didn't like the guitar in...o_o). =D

Nah, I prefer to tune lower. My tunings usually go into weird Hebrew symbols.

why should you be forced to play a upside down guitar? Not saying i dont, have not, or will not. But there are somethings you just cant do as good with a upside down guitar. Like play as accurately or as smooth on the higher frets because the cut away gets in the way

Iommi... by far one of the best guitarists alive, and the dude from municipal wase is pretty cool, nothing special (his guitar is tho), but hes kool
Eh.
