I feel discriminated against that there is no "I'm righthanded but I play lefthanded." option!

That would be cool. Alas, I'm right handed and play right handed.

Well I am ambidextrous as far as I can tell... For example I play ping-pong with my left hand, wield sword/other weapon in my left hand, but write with my right hand and play guitar righthanded...

When i started, it really didn't crossed my mind to use left handed guitars. Later, when i saw the first left hand guitar, i honestly thought the fretting hand does way more complicated things as the picking hand will ever do, i was and maybe still am quite stupid biggrin.gif

biggrin.gif .. my picking problem is, i spend so much time with picking exercises, since months. I gain more and more control but not even 1 bpm to speed. 16th notes at 120 is and stays the limit, after synchronization is a question of luck.

Monte, you have a alt. picking paranoia as well i heard. You think there is healing for us ? .. biggrin.gif

I actually have a bad habit of using both when I play... It's working so far, though! laugh.gif

But I do pick with my right hand. I'm boring like that.

I know a guy who is right-handed, but plays lefty. Even weirder, he first learned how to play right handed and decided to switch over later on! Cool story behind it, though. I guess his dad was left-handed (and played guitar) and he decided to play this way in memory of him.
