Need a survey to use to use for my statistics project. I just want to know if you play right handed, left handed, or both. To make this more accurate select the one which you normally play but if you can play both equally the same by all means vote both. Thanks for all your help.

Right handed. I play drums either way though. Its a good skill to have as a drummer.
We're only strays.

Lefty ftw.

I'm left handed but I play righty.

People who play left handed are just being deliberately awkward.

Left Handed but plays Righty. I started out that way, and when you consider that it really is the left hand that is doing most of the work, it makes sense.
I definetly think that i had som advantages when it came to accuracy when i was starting out.

No. Please don't say this again.

i am left handed but i decided to quit playing lefty because all the lefty guitars were more expensive then rightys.

Is that a ukulele in your pants, or did you just rip ass to the tune of "Aloha Oi"?


I met Sonic Youth on June 30th, and Mars Volta on Oct 20th.

Righty, though used to play left... Until I realised that it was way easier to play with my right.

lefty! how can someone play both?


Jimi Hendrix did
"That was it, a nick. Now happily paid for. [...] It was decided that it was so far away in time and influence that...well, you only get caught when you're successful. That's the game". Robert Plant

I am one of this percentage....but i can't play lefty bass
sometimes i get to use my girls drums she plays righty but i think i should technically be playing lefty as it feels so uncomfortable...

I play righty. And the people who voted both are probably lying.


Chances are, they just sound equally **** whichever way they play.

Yeah, they probably vote both but sound very sloppy when they play. Seriously, what is the point of being able to play both righty and lefty? It doesn't make it sound any better, so it's just a waste of time. The only use is so you can show off to make up for your crappy music, such as Michael Angelo Batio.

There really is no point, but if you can play well then your "different" from the other guitarist, you can impress people more.

and MAB has some good stuff, 80% of his music is ****, but if you look more into his music he does have pretty good stuff.

It took time for me to, but I can now play lefty "ok". I don't own a lefty guitar, but it feels easier to me because my right hand is more coordinated and stronger. The hardest part of trying to play lefty was getting my left hand to strum correctly.
#32
Wait...


how do you know he's talking about guitar...


Maybe he means fapping?


....either way, righty.
