I am a natural left hander, I write left handed and use a fork, spoon, etc. with my left hand. However, I learned to throw a baseball or football with my right hand. I am a pistol shooter and shoot one handed using my right hand because my right eye is dominant. I started playing a guitar back last July and bought a right handed guitar because the selection was so much better. If I go right hand from the beginning I'm okay but I never have been successful changing left to right or right to left once I learned a skill with a hand.
Welcome aboard Jesse. I do everything right handed. When I started playing guitar so many years ago I did it right handed. I had an accident where I was working 10 years or so ago and I lost the ring and pinky fingers on my left hand. I had only played guitar a few times during the years before my accident, when a friend would bring his giutars to my house. After my accident I figured my playing days were over. I decided a few years ago to try to play guitar so I started to look of a lefthanded. The first guitar I bought was an Ovation, it was a nice guitar and it got me going. I was almost ready to give up because everything was upside down and backwards, I was very fustrated. I started taking lessons and that was the best thing I could do. After playing a few months he told me that a local store had Seagull guitars. I tried one and loved it and they had lefties so I got one. After a few more months or constantly testing guitars I tried a Martin and I haven't looked back, about a year later I had my Martin. It is the best sounding guitar I have ever played. I started with a new instructore recenly and my playing has greatly improved, at this rate I may actually do some justice to the Martin
