Endre thanks again for the very detailed comments!
Let me clarify that Iím lefty and I made sure the hand was in the right position when doing the simulation (maybe thatís why I donít play guitar).
You are absolutely correct about the strings; I realized that I had only one size wire but didnít have the motivation to go shopping for a heavier gauge on a Sunday afternoon, so I shot it anyway.
This was just a piece of black cardboard with a hole mounted on a wooden frame, twelve screws and a roll of wire, not quite a classical...Show more →
My dear friend, John,
Your hand position is beautiful but being a "lefty has absolutely nothing to do with anything. I know several "lefty" classical guitarists and they all play with the guitar in the right position. Rock guitarists are another matter. They are often self-taught so they pick up all sorts of bad habits out of ignorance. (Having met Paul McCartney on one occasion, I would say that ignorance and arrogance are both operant. But I digress...) Only Django Reinhardt who nearly burned his hand off really needed to play the other way. If you think about it, "lefty" or "righty" should make no difference. One still needs to develop the proper skills with each hand to accomplish whatever is needed to make the instrument sing. There are certainly as many "lefty" violinists in the world as in the general population but I'll bet you've never seen one playing the instrument backwards. I've never seen one. I don't want to seem like I'm harping on a small matter but I see lots of silly-looking advertisement photos of violinists and guitarists that are obviously flipped backwards because the ad agency people don't know any better. To my eyes, it's really quite jarring to look at your otherwise lovely photo and have it scream at me that it's backward and therefore makes no sense. All that it needs is to be flipped in PS. Maybe I'm just nuts! :worried:
Thanks for letting me get my two cents in.
