ok, so ive had this acoustic guitar for about 6 months, and have only gotten around to seriously starting to play it th past few weeks. I know im probably gonna get flamed for this, but im learning the song "Darkness" by disturbed......ive gotten most of the song and am working on the hard part(to me). I recently went to the guitar store down the road, and was talking to the owner and basically informed me that i needed to start playing right handed because im a lefty.......well, being the rebelious person that i am, i didnt take his advice and have been learning to play a right handed guitar left handed......do you think i shouldve taken the advice? lol

just do what you feel is right and go for it.
mr. suicide played like that and see where he ended up

lol, yes i am playing it upside down.......i can actually kind of do it though...i mean, i can play the intro, and when i get that down to as good as i want, im gonna move on to the chorus. I played the intro to my brother(metal head) and he knew what i was playing no problem. Needless to say, i was pretty happy

awkward... i think it should just be re stringed to be... not upside down.
my guitar was a lefty, and i had to restring it (because my friend gave it to me with 3 very out of tune and old, crap strings)

the thing is, its comfortable to me. but i can see where everyone is coming from. i mean, it is definately difficult for me to use tabs. usually i have to re write them the way i play my guitar. Also, right now, i am very happy cause i finally finished the intro to darkness(been practicing since 2 in the afternoon), now for the chorus

I think progressing further could prove to be really difficult. Why not just re-string and learn to play lefty normally?

wouldn't playing the guitar upside down cause serious issues in fingering certain chords?
