Ok. So I'm on an 11 day holiday to another city and I can't take my electric guitar with me. But when I get to my aunt's house, I find a left handed classical guitar. By luck I brought my Jazz III pick with me. It's day 6 now without playing my beauty and I'm desperate to play. What can I do on the left handed guitar?

Help!!! sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif

I'm doing some chromatics but it's really boring... I want to do something melodic. Maybe I should learn left handed guitar...

You could just take the strings off, string it backwards, and have you a makeshift right handed guitar, though it might still be a bit odd to play.

Well the thing is, it's my cousin's guitar. He bought a right handed guitar and changed the strings so it would be left handed sad.gif

I you have enough time and your cousin don't play that much, ask him to restring the guitar, and buy a new set off course. If it is matter of one week, just practice on the left handed guitar. Practice some one or two string melodies going alternate picking, or maybe going up the neck using two strings at a time. you can also practice right hand strumming, get your pinky little stronger, or do some simple hromatics in django reinhardt style. If you get bored with those, try some power chords, or maybe practice your ear by playing a game where you must remember the sounding of one one and recalling it by heart. aaaah you can do a lot of things, don't worry smile.gif
