As a southpaw, I have always been looking for ways to improve my playing ability. I’ve noticed that many of the truly greats are all southpaws (Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison). The list goes on and on.
I’ve also noticed that there are very few resources out there for lefties trying to learn how to play guitar. When I first started out, it was frustrating trying to find good instructional material that was specifically tailored towards lefties.
In this site, I will be sharing my experiences and tricks of the trade that I have picked up throughout the years as a lefty guitarist. If you are a fellow southpaw or if you just want to know more about what it is like learning how to play guitar from a southpaw’s perspective, then you’ve come to the right place!

Guitarists are creative people, and so it is no surprise that many of them are left handed. Some play left handed guitars, with the strings reversed; others play right handed guitars with the strings as they are. There are also those who choose to play ambidextrously, and many more who have never given their dominant hand a second thought.
The right hand is the hand used to strum or pluck the strings in most cases. The left hand is the one used to press down on the strings to form chords or play individual notes. This is not always true, but it is a generalization that can help you get started when you begin playing guitar.
If you are right handed and have never played before, then left handed guitar will feel natural. You will not have anything to unlearn and you can simply go ahead and start learning how to play from day one! If you are left handed and want to start learning how to play, I would suggest getting an electric guitar first, since these tend to accommodate both hands equally well.
There are many famous musicians who were born left-handed too: Jimi Hendrix (a guitarist), Kurt Cobain (a guitarist), Paul McCartney (a bass player) and even Ringo Starr
For every left handed guitar player there is a right handed guitar player with the mirror image problem.
If you could find an ambidextrous guitar, you would have solved both problems at the same time.
As far as I know, no such guitar exists.
I will keep looking, and if I ever discover one I will buy it immediately.
