Kay Poor replied to Maeve Manion-Fischer's discussion Left hand vs. right handed playing in the group Lefties Unite!!!
"I tried lots of right-handed guitars but it never "felt right" if you know what I mean. I just felt odd. Then I went to a store that had a left-handed guitar and as soon as I picked it up I knew I was home. It felt like me."

I love music

I started out as a Beatle fan in 1963. I am struggling to learn left-handed but am determined to stick with it!!

Hey Kay!

Nice to make your virtual acquaintance. I also liked the Beatles way back when..... I play guitar regularly now that I'm retired. I am left-handed in everything but guitar playing. It was difficult for me to learn right-handed years ago. The best advice I can offer is to keep playing. Try to play some every day (even if just for a few minutes). Eventually you'll become good. As long as you love it, keep doing it.
