jsut do whatever feels more comfortable to you, if you can play an acoustic, then i cant see why you wouldnt be able to play an electric

Playing acoustic is just like playing electric, on the surface at least. You shouldn't have any trouble.

Do you play it like a right handed player? If you do then that is good since me father is left-handed and has trouble finding left-handed guitars. Anyways it shouldn't matter, but switching from acoustic to electric is a big thing since electrics are much easier to play since they have (well most of them) thinner necks, more ergonomic bodies, and a lot less string tension which makes fretting easier and doesn't take as much exertion. You will probably learn a little slower right now, but it will pay off in the end.

it doesnt really make a difference, cept upstrokes would be downstokes, and vice versa. also i think tabs are upside down for you... not sure though

yes i just use lefts, and im lefty, being a lefty punishes you so much though, its SOOOO anoying!
#12
yeh thanks guys thats why i chose to play right handed guitars because you pay less for right handed guitars , and no i do not play the guitar upside down lol, i play it normally its just that im left handed so me picking hand is weaker than my fretting hand.
#13
I do the same thing (lefty playing right-handed guitars, fretting with left hand, picking/strumming with right). No I haven't had any problem switching from acoustics to electrics. In fact, electrics are easier to play because the action is lower.

meh, Im left handed and i play right handed guitars just fine. Honestly, I dont think I'd know what to do with a left handed guitar if i was handed one >.<
#15
well do you play left handed on a right handed guitar, or your left handed and you play right handed on a right handed guitar? im left handed but i play right handed, i turned out fine.
