See, you should of just started out playing guitar right handed. You don't know how to play anyways in the beginning so why not start right handed? I know a bunch of lefties that play the correct way, which is right handed.

Fuck lefties. hahaha

Fuck you! I'm a lefty as well! (Or ambidexter, I still don't know)
But what do you mean by the correct way?
Why would the left handed way be wrong?

He means the right handed way is correct, right hard picking, left hand fretting. And the left hand way is wrong because you need a special backwards guitar for it. But its not the worst, the real wrong way is demonstrated by this guy, pretty good i must say, but bad technique http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p49oNyZ48Po

Still doesn't make any sence at all, what's wrong about needing a special backwards guitar as you mentioned?

Actually I heard somewhere lefties have some kind of brain advantage when it comes to playing music... I forget the exact reason, but I think it has to do with using the right side of your brain because you use your left hand,,, and something about using the right side of your brain gives you that advantage

But you dont need it, but demanded guitar companies to stop advancing and make all their guitars backwards. I know a leftie who plays the right handed way. I dont mind lefties, but that guy playing the cryptopsy cover made me lol. He's left handed, so he bought a left handed guitar, but he plays it upside down and with the strings the wrong way round.

As in like, say if jackson spent 15% of their materials and everything on left handed guitars, they could have spent that on developing and producing newer and better right handed guitars.

I'm left handed but have always played guitar right handed. I think maybe because I played violin when I was a kid and I was taught playing right handed.

I know, I dont really look on left handed guitarists that much, just yesterday I thought about the materials thing, so i was being a dick haha. But if i was left handed id definately pick up a right handed guitar. Thats what Michael Angelo Batio did.

It was a completely natural choice... I started when I was about 10 and I instincly turned the guitar the other way round, it was inevitable.

I remember when I was a kid, the guitarist of this local pop punk band called the ataris played a normal guitar upside down, left handed style, but with a right handed guitar.

sound. I didn't know if it was one of those anecdotal things that get repeated so often that they supercede the factual origins or if it was actually true.

Either way Hendrix pwns.

well yeah but I'm not a musician, plus I'm a simpleton, so how am i really likely to know if a guitar he's playing is lefthanded or not?

You're a fucking faggot solely for typing that under every pic you post, yet you start crying like a little bitch when you actually get flamed, which thankfully happens from time to time.
