Subject: RE: Tips for teaching a lefty guitar?
The determinant for left/right is the broom-handle test. Pick it up and give it your best Angus Young and that will be the way you feel most comfortable playing.

If you change your way of teaching for a lefty, it will affect their way of learning. Teach them from converted chord charts and it will slow them up reading normal charts in future. Sitting opposite and mirror-imaging is about all you should do. Most left handers are already more practised at adapting simple technology (scissors, rulers etc.).
