go to youtube and search for "no hands guitar player", or "guitar toes", you will find a guy playing guitar WITHOUT HANDS OR ARMS!!! He plays with his feet!!!! And he rocks, hes better at guitar than my bands frontman... what would a guitar player tell that dude, if he asked whether or not he could do it? probably "eeeerrr - no".

But like you said, its all about being happy. And even if that takes a regular righty, to try new boundaries, why not? i do feel, that this style of playing is quite different from the regulars, since completely new patterns come up, and new ways you can use fingerrolls and stuff like that.

the only thing i also really despise,is if someone wants to be different from others so bad, that he chooses "looks" over practice and "community". if you havent mastered YOUR way of playing, whats the point in trying a new way? you wont master it, too. try to be innovative, but build up on your own experience. what would have been the point of making it? check out "ZackKim" on youtube, a guy who plays on two guitars, or the cool caribbean woman with her "Awesome Upside Down Guitar Playing". Even the accoustic divison can go new ways. check out "Andy McKee drifting". those are all great examples of innovative play for rightys...
dont sell you soul!

Yo, great to hear about attitude from soemone who rather talks about playing guitar, than actually getting better (i did follow your myspace link...)

no offence, but the "universe" is a little deeper than you....

Default Music for people that love music.

First off, I play this way. I have always played left-handed strung right. My dad is a left-handed guitar player that just learned to play right-handed. I grew up surrounded by normal righty guitars. Second, there are plenty of guitarists that play this way.

Will there be challenges? Yes. Playing this way will test your ability to adapt, your ability to learn, and your ability to create in a completely different way.
There is maybe only one or two YouTube videos that teach lefty backwards players. So you will have to answer a lot of questions for yourself.

Challenges on electric guitar that I run into regularly that haven't stopped me in 15 years.
a) I love the look and play of a Fender strat. However I lose accessibility to higher frets due to the cutouts being further away from the pickups.
b) Guitar straps are usually mounted on the other side. So I add a new one.
c) Knobs, switches, output cable are all on the upper side for me. This took some getting used to. You can always buy a lefty guitar and just string it right.

Benefits I have found.
a) You will always have something that can set you apart from other players.
b) Looks great on stage next to a right guitarist because the guitars face opposite.
c) Musically, certain chords will be easier. (Certain will be harder of course). Also it always made sense that the lowest sound was on the bottom and the scale works its way up.

I love music and I love making music. There is no way I would rather play guitar than lefty backwards. It is always something to talk about and I can always pick up any normal guitar and just play.

Do not let anyone tell you how your should play. This is not a decision that anyone can make but yourself.
