Lefty that swings both ways!!

Hi Everybody!
A lot of people kind of freak out a little the first time they see me flip between left and right handed instruments. they usually have a few questions so I thought I would Answer A few of the most common ones here. I started out playing right handed guitar because I was very young and couldn't afford to buy my own so I just played other peoples. I did that for about 3 years. by the time I got my first, I was 14 And took a couple of lessons. The first thing my teacher made me do was flip my strings around to be left handed. I remember how frustrating that was. It felt like I was starting from scratch!
After while I started to really reap the benefits, especially on electric. It was so much easier to play lead with a left handed guitar!! I kept playing right too, particularly on acoustic, I found myself writing a lot of songs using unusual chord voicings that would probably break your fingers if you tried to play them the traditional (i.e. right handed) way.
I have a wonderful mandolin that is right handed that I play all the time. I have never even TRIED a left handed one....
