            They make left handed guitars. the shapes aren't conducive to playing "upside down" if you strung them that way. They are more expensive as you buy more expensive guitars because they prob don't want to make them.
            I'm left handed, but, with the exception of actually writing, im fairly ambidextrous, and have played guitar righty and lefty.

              Oh, right. He should have stuck to the guitar and let somebody else sing. Or gone into landscaping or something, he was terrible.

                Last year I fell into a Cobain wormhole, and watched both documentaries "Soaked in Bleach" and "Montage of a Heck"

                  • Hendrix took a right handed guitar and re-strung it "lefty".

                    McCartney's Rickenbacker bass is a left handed bass.

                    "No...I didn't."
                    "Oh it was most exhilarating: the Giants of NY took on the Packers of Green Bay and in the end the Giants triumphed by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big H. It was a most ripping victory."

                      punk musicians are cool people?

                              I rarely can trace back what spawns my questions. I have learned to live with the mystery that is my own thought process.

                                Actually, I think they are the same average temperature as the rest of us.
