Playing the Guitar Left Handed Guitar Mania





Consider that almost ninety percent of the world’s population is born right handed. Meaning, they use their right hands more often than the left one. Their right hand is responsible for important everyday activities like writing. And where does this leave the lefties? Basically, vice versa.

In the music industry, a small minority of musicians are left-handed. Though some notable and famous performers are born lefties. Personalities like Jimi Hendrix and Dan Seals played left-handed. Is this much of a surprise? Other artists who are left-handed switch the guitar’s string for their own benefit.

How do lefties go about playing a guitar custom made for the right handed?

If you have overcame the idea of quitting, and you are among the left-handed who try so hard learning to play it your way, might as well read attentively. This can help you figure out what to do. You can actually do two things: first, you can switch the strings or you can choose to play the guitar upside down. Sounds funny? It’s a fact and pretty much effective.

Some write-ups stated it is way difficult and outrageous to create notes with a guitar positioned upside down. While others believe nothing is impossible if you try really hard and put your heart into it. The idea of rotating the guitar and operating it backwards can be accepted and used.

Using the basic chords, a left-handed player can place his fingers on the same set of strings only that it has to be put the other way around but with the same basic strings. Regardless of how accustomed people are when it comes to playing a guitar right handed, some left handed guitarists have introduced newer methods.

To start with, you should equip yourself with a guitar guide or manual. Playing with an upside down guitar doesn’t necessarily mean changing the mode of how fingering should be. The placement of your fingers would still be the same although the only difference would rely on the finger you use on the fret of the guitar. Normally, if you would play a right handed guitar right handed, the C would represent that your fourth finger must be positioned at the third fret dipping on the fifth string. Then your third finger must lie on the second fret pressing on the fourth string. Last, your index finger must be on the first fret down on the second string.

With an inverted guitar for lefties, it should be done in an inverted way too. Noting that your last string would be on top and the fret would remain the same. Things are difficult if you have no guitar to practice with. Make it a point that you follow what the diagram shows and not making the mistake of strumming the forbidden strings in each chord.

This type of technique is difficult, indeed. So start with those chords that only require three or three fingers at the moment. Basic chords like CAGED or some minor details. When you get the hang on it, try working on the harder ones. Do not saturate yourself with learning the hard ones first. That would be enough reason for you to give up. Frustrated.

But if you find it really hard to cope with this kind of style, settle with the conventional way of playing. That is, playing a right handed guitar right handed even though you’re left handed.
