Would there be a way to find out if your left-handed? I mean i have used my right hand to write all my life and it looks atrocious. I tried with my left-handed and sadly it looks just about the same without practice. I have thought of this many times, it would make since. So simple things in playing my guitar like strumming and other things some people get and i just don't. I am by far not stupid seeing as i am college material, but when i was younger everything just didn't work real well. And of course schools usually 'enforce' the right-handedness in people. I have been clumsy with my hands all my life. Recently i looked up what it said on wiki about this subject. It describes me quite well. I have a love of drawing and guitar playing and both seem to crash no matter how i do, but if i was the other hand all my life that would explain alot. Here is the main question though.

Can someone go all there life right handed and really be left?
Sorry for the long explination and thanks for any help.

p.s. all my life is really just 20 years so.....hehe

Write with your left hand and then try again with your right, see which one is more comfortable and seems more natural to you. I'm left handed and writing with my right seems like i'm trying to write upsidedown behind my back it's so damn awkward.

I write much like Number 7 from "Bench Warmers" I just stare at it and a red beam of letters make their way onto the paper.

yeah see which just feels "right" (as in not wrong).

or... wait for it.... you could be ambidextrous! or you use different hands for different tasks!

I myself write left handed, play guitar right handed.
#8
Maybe you're ambidextrous (You can use both hands equally well, or almost). I'm ambidextrous, just i choose to use my left hand 100% of the time because everything is faster. I can play right handed guitar (sort of) but i can play a drum kit left or right handed and I'm just as fast either way round.

Maybe you should look into ambidextrous-ism and see if that describes you?

It's especially useful when fapping



though it seems the TS is "no-handed"


hahahaha!! cwatididthar?????

Ambidextrous: I am not, and nor are you. You just fail, who the hell has to ask if they're left handed?
#12
Put your hands together and close them (your fingers should be interlaced; right finger, then left, then right, etc)...

I've noticed that whichever has the thumb on the inside is usually the one that you feel more comfortable using.

Also... throw an object... your strongest and most accurate hand is probably your best bet. Or if u get thrown something it'll be the one that reacts first.

Try using your feet.


Who do you think i am? Jimi Hendrix? but seriously. This would determine how i play guitar, if i suck or if i am just undertrained.

what hand you write with isn't really a set thing that is decided when you're born and from then on you're definatly right or left handed.

if forced from a young age to use the 'other' hand you will become, for a lack of a better word, that handed

for example, even though i'm left handed, i write with my left hand, i play guitar left handed, there are still a lot of things that my right hand is the dominant hand, for the sole reason that i've always used my right hand to do it, using a mouse for example, or throwing something

so if you've always written with your right hand, you're right handed, and just have terrible handwriting
#20
Don't be so confused, my handwriting sucks and i'm DEFINATELY left handed. Some people just don't have good handwriting.

My right hand is dominate at some things, playing guitar for example, but that doesn't mean i'm ambidextrous.

LOL

you could be both handed.. or could just have awful handwriting
my handwriting's kinda **** lol, and i don't question f i could be left handed
wen i ask they say that they fall into the habit smhw ........but nyways i think there is a connection smwhere. Now i being a teetollar will not give into this habit nyhw

FOR JUST £2 A WEEK, YOU CAN PREVENT THIS.

#26
I write with my left
Use a mouse with my right
Throw with my right
Play the "regular" guitar, but it feels more left handed to me?
Probably more control picking up with my left.

:/
#27

My friend is a lefty; he draws, writes and does anything else with his left hand, but plays a right-handed guitar. He's been playing for about 5 years, and he's pretty good, so I don't think it affects your skill that much, depending on how long you've been playing I guess.

I'm also left-handed, but play right-handed. It makes a whole lot of more sense i think, since it's your left hand that does most of the work.

I think if you've used your right hand all your life, your pretty much right handed.

Not necessarily. My dad is technically left handed but because he had to live under communism, his school made him write with his right hand. They would literally tie his left hand to the back of his chair so he'd write with his right hand. So today, he writes with his right hand, but he's able to write with both hands at once if he wanted to, even though he rarely uses his left hand to write.
And he does most other things left handed...

that and how that every guitar out there is pretty much right handed only They need to tell beginners that the guitars are right handed in the title, because I honestly didn't even know it made a difference


this thread is now about how us leftys have to live in a right-hand man's world.

I can't write, play guitar, bat or throw with my left hand (or kick with my left foot) - But in that department, I appear to be ambidextrous
