Re: Lefties in a Righty world
I was about 13 when my Mom took me to a guitar shop for my first guitar. When the salesperson saw me pick it up upside down, right-handed didn't even seem like an option and we didn't know any better, so I got a lefty MIJ Squier (which by the way the other guitarists in my school had convinced me was a POS, didn't find out that wasn't the case until I picked up an MIA Strat years later that wasn't much better). Not being able to try friends' guitars and not having good options for guitars has been a little annoying over the years, but on the other hand, I have gotten some great deals on the used market because of the lack of demand.
I have read on the Lefty Forums about a lefty player that had played righty for years and years, and hit a point where he couldn't excel anymore. He re-learned lefty (which obviously was a huge step back) but eventually managed to surpass the wall he hit playing righty.
