Subject: RE: Tips for teaching a lefty guitar?
Yes, and the left brain (in a left-handed person) is said to be more 'intuitive', as opposed to the right brain's penchant for 'logical reasoning'. Is rhythm more of an intuitive than a logical thing? I think so!

Maybe that's why so many lefties say that 'feeling the beat' and strumming along with it is easier for the right hand, while figuring out (and memorizing) frets and fingering would be easier for the left. And vice versa in a right-handed person.

I messed that up, didn't I!?!   AARRRGGHHHH geez you'd think I'd have left and right figured out after almost half a century on the planet    AAARRRGGGHHHH   shoulda been born a southpaw! THEY usually get it mastered, at least!
