Are you left handed?
While it is sometimes difficult for us lefties to function in this right-handed world, musicians face a special set of problems.
For example, I learned to play ukulele on a left-handed instrument, only to later experience frustration that I couldn't play just any random ukulele but instead could only use a "backwards" one which are always difficult to find.
So when I decided to teach myself mandolin I consciously chose to play a right-handed instrument flipped upside down, which comes with its own special set of challenges. But at least I can play other peoples' mandolins now.
What challenges have you faced being a left-handed musician?
"The Clash of the Headstocks" while playing with others on stage?
Teachers telling you that "It won't make any difference if you learn to play right-handed" (when of course it makes a huge difference)?
Tell us about it....
