Mark's Guitars

Home of the Left handed Guitar Enthusiast.

My site is dedicated in particular to left handed guitars.

I have acquired a handful of nice guitars over the years. Some are vintage and some are just cool little experiments of mine.

If you love guitars, or more specifically, love left handed guitars then please stop by.

Left Hand Guitar Player

Hi Guys,
I play guitar for about 10 Years now, and in my journey persist the problem as others have, not to be able to play any guitar that comes under my fingers.
Sometimes it is frustrating not to be capable of byuing any desired instrument, and have to concentrate on a small Guitar models.
I'd like to have some E-mail connections with you people with the same problem, and interchange valuable information in this matter.

Hoping to hear soon from you around the World

Best Regards and keep on Rockin

Re: Left Hand Guitar Player

Hey lefties! We rule!! Anyway, I want to learn to play guitar as a lefty. BIG QUESTION: Is it possible to learn to play left-handed on a right-handed guitar? That is, not restrung upside down or buying a left-handed guitar. I understand the key challenge is learning to strum upside-down. True? Any advice would be appreciated.

Re: Left Hand Guitar Player

I've been doing it for 35 years and I can take any righty on, upside down! My older brother got a guitar in the 60s with a chord chart and knowledge of tuning I flipped it over and never stopped.Made a lot of money playing. I've got great leads on my junior (great guitar for flipping over) and solid strumming on acoustic. most chords are easy some are easier than proper. It's mostly spirit and innovation that makes great guitarists, not cookie cutter lessons!

Re: Left Hand Guitar Player

Well... I've played guitar left-handed on a righty guitar for 25 years. If you are just starting, bite the bullet and switch the strings around so that the bass is towards your head and the treble towards your toes. It will make for an easier time of it in the long run. If you are as obstinate as I was and insist on playing righty guitars, don't worry about strumming in reverse - that would be ultimately very unsatisfying for you and, because of the mechanics of the whole thing, probably never sound that great. I have several guitars and all of them are strung for a righty. Lefty rule #1: don't buy right-hand instuments, particularly electrics (the knobs are forever in the way, I don't care what Jimi did!). The only exception to this rule is if you play strung righty and you want an acoustic - then you have to buy righty because the bridge is already cut that way; a lefty would have to be strung left, right? There are many good reasons to switch the strings to lefty. I play lap style dobro also and recently switched those strings to lefty and, after playing dobro for 20 years, am learning over again. There are some things that are not possible playing the other way. Email me if you want to discuss this further. Good luck. - Dave

Re: Left Hand Guitar Player

that's what I'm tryna do! Purely because I'm left handed and I have a right handed guitar that belonged to someone else and I refuse to play it right-handed.

Re: Left Hand Guitar Player

I know it is possible because my dad's friend does.
